As Pierre Bourdieu has taught us, there are correlations between social position and aesthetic taste. In a country like Laos, however, social position is not only determined by class but also by the communist party, rural configurations and ethnicity. These dimensions need to be explored before studying their correlations with musical taste. The first part of the lecture will briefly outline the dimensions of social structure that matter in Laos and the second will correlate them with varieties of music prevailing in them. The final section will explore what role youth culture plays in each of the identified social positions and to which degree youth culture can be distinguished from the cultures of older generations.
The population of Southeast Asia has experienced a sevenfold increase in less than 120 years to a total of more than 650 million people, which compares to Europe with around 740 million. Southeast Asia’s population is developing at a high speed, and although the growth of the elder is rapidly increasing, Southeast Asian nations have relatively young populations, which make them highly attractive for companies because the region’s GDP is growing expansively. Using the young population structures and aging of Southeast Asian populations as a lens, international scholars will discuss important current issues, such as connections between youth and violent conflicts, the categorisation of age groups in Southeast Asia and how youths express themselves in cultural productions.
