The Indigenization of Tamil Christian Music: Musical Style and Liberation Theology
Historical and ethnographic analysis of the cultural exchange of religion in the context of colonialism reveals that local indigenizers have agency and the adoptive process cannot simply be attributed to cultural imposition that resulted in the destruction of the indigenous culture. Moreover, generations after adoption in the post-colonial period, it has been observed that oppressed groups can continue to re-indigenize or reform the adopted religion by drawing on local liberating cultural forms that continue to make it contextually meaningful.
