Your long-term sneering dismissal of everybody's work except your hard-to-find own is deeply insulting and is compounded by your persistent refusal even to challenge it with facts or even reasoned argument.
You persist in pontificating from the safety of your verbiage - I find that deeply offensive.
The 54 definition is an attempt to define a certain type of music - it is not an ethnomusicalogical one - it is a folkloristic one
It is widely recognised that it is in need of updating, or even replacing, pretentious debunking doesn't hack it for me.
