Himalayan societies have been commonly depicted as remote and non-technological cultures that preserve traditional life-styles, arts, and language. In reality, areas such as Nepal, Tibet, Uttarkhand, and Ladakh, connected as they are to influential political-economic entities like China and India, have become part of globalizing culture through increased infrastructure. This Introduction situates the articles of this special issue on Himalayan Popular Music within the key literature of the topic and problematizes their approach through the lenses of technology, change, and neo-liberal ideologies.
