Description: English title: 'Elvis meets Buddha: Musical experiences in Myanmar, the land of the golden pagodas'.
The music of Myanmar is alien to people from the west. This is not only due to the exotic instruments, but also to the Burmese musical structure. In addition, European classical music only came to what was then Burma in 1820 through the British colonial power. The military ruling in the post-colonial era banned jazz, swing and later rock and pop. Today, however, RockNRoll and Burmese musical tastes sometimes meet and unite to form a tolerant symbiosis. For example at the largest Buddhist pilgrimage site in Myanmar, the Golden Rock near Kyauktion. There the author presents Elvis Presley Jailhouse Rock.
