The pan flute musicians at Sergels torg: between global flows and specificities of place

Abstract

Research on the relationship between music and place has highlighted the importance of music for how people perceive, feel and act in particular places. This chapter explores the performative power of representations of a group of South American indigenous pan flute musicians busking on the streets of Stockholm, Sweden, taking inspiration from a more-than-representational approach. It is a qualitative exploration of how music can both be representative of mobilities at different scales, and affect experiences of mobility in particular places through the emotions, thoughts and memories it generates. We explore the pan flute music itself as a highly mobile phenomenon and an example of the globalisation of ‘world music', but it also emerges that the music is posited as representative of particular local place-making efforts.
