  t may seem strange that we're discussing music from a Broadway production in this class, “The Lion King" especially, since it's based on a popular Hollywood movie. I mean music performed for Broadway theater in the heart of New York city surely would seem to be in the western tradition of popular music and not have much in common with the music we've been studying in this course, such as gamelan music of Indonesia, or Zulu chants of South Africa, music that developed outside the western tradition of Europe and America. But in fact, musicians have a long-standing tradition of borrowing from one another's cultures. And this production's director intentionally included both western and non-western music. That way, some of the rhythms, instruments, harmonies typical of non-western music contrast with and complement popular music more familiar to audiences in North America and Europe, music like rock, jazz or Broadway style show tunes.

  也许在我们这门课上讨论百老汇制作的音乐剧有点儿奇怪,特别是《狮子王》,因为它是根据一个很受欢迎的Hollywood电影改编的。我的意思是,在纽约中心百老汇上演的音乐剧看上去一定是跟随西方音乐传统,而这不同于我们所学的欧洲和美洲传统之外的音乐,比如印尼的gamelan音乐,或南非Zulu族单调的口号。但是,音乐家们有借鉴别种文化的传统。这部音乐剧的导演有意在剧中融合了西方音乐和非西方音乐。这样,一些非西方音乐的节拍、乐器、音调与欧美观众所熟知的音乐,如摇滚,爵士、百老汇音乐之间,会产生强大的对比。
