Chapter 5 Modernities in Conflict: The Military Band Betwixt Empires and Nations
Traversing the imperial and the national imaginary, military musicians are the focus of this chapter. Fin-de-siècle Manila was a nexus in modern reimagining of the collapsing archaic Spanish Empire, the US experiment on imperialism, and the embryonic Filipino republic. The chapter investigates how the Filipino military musicians’ performing bodies became sites of simultaneous claims and contestations of national, imperial, and global imaginings of modernity.
