Musique, Nature et Homme : singulière “culture” dans les sociétés de tradition orale

Abstract : The music bears witness to the extraordinary diversity of the world's cultural worlds. The abundance of its forms of expression results in particular from a singular and complex relationship of man with the natural environment. For many peoples living in osmosis with nature and the supernatural, this link music-nature-man is one of the vital dynamics of their socio-cultural organization. The result is interrelations that generate a body of wisdom and knowledge of considerable wealth, resulting, among other things, in a range of cosmogonies, myths, legends and other oral literatures, exalted through dance and the music. A subject such as Music, Nature and Man, would justify more than an encyclopedia, and consider an exhaustive study in a few lines would not make sense. The field studied will therefore be limited to the search for the nature of the musical links between man and his natural environment, and within their reach. This dual questioning can be translated as follows: What concepts underlie the communication by music of man with nature? What are the challenges for the oral tradition? A subject such as Music, Nature and Our words will be based on the examination of three seemingly alien cultures - Chinese culture, African culture and Black culture of Guyana - that share the same ground concept in the field, with however nuances specific to each of them.
