Summary/Abstract: The review presents two volumes with texts from conferences, published in 2008 in the series Bulgarian Musicology: Studies. The first one, The Human World and Musical Diversity consists papers from the 4th Meeting of the ICTM Study Group “Music and Minorities” that has taken place in Varna, Bulgaria in 2006 (Aug 25 – Sept 1, 2006). It is attempting to describe the dialogue among the published papers, especially around the concept of hybridity, the topic of the leading paper of Prof. Dr. Elka Chernokozheva. The idea of hybridity is either discussed or commented upon in the following papers in this study group (indirectly in others too), which is indicative of the relevancy of the idea to ethnomusicology and the direction in which the discipline evolves. Outlined are discussions about the attitude in this analytical category towards European and Global modernity, hybridity and authenticity, hybridity and tradition, hybridity and identity etc. The second volume Vienna and the Balkans, includes a number of papers from the 39th World Conference of the ICTM that has taken place in Vienna, in 2007 (July 4–11, 2007): the papers from a specific thematic panel “History and Perspectives of the National Ethnomusicology and Ethno-choreology of the Balkans”; and the papers of the Bulgarian participants in other panels of the conference. The issue celebrates the establishment of a new unit at ICTM- a study group for music and dance of South-Eastern Europe- outlining the goals of its future work.
