DIAZ-COLLAO, Leonardo  e  SOTO-SILVA, Ignacio. The Use of Ethnography in the Study of Mapuche Music. Rev. music. chil. [online]. 2021, vol.75, n.235, pp.9-25. ISSN 0716-2790.

This paper emerges based on the ethnographic experience and theoretical-methodological reflection of its authors in the framework of their doctoral research and research project. The aim of this review is to analyze the use of ethnography in the study of Mapuche music, in Chile. We carry out a bibliographic review in various sources of information (thesis repositories, academic databases, dissemination spaces associated with mapuche organizations) and select works that address mapuche musical expressions that use the methodology in question, or some ethnographic “component” in their qualitative approaches. The analyzed corpus includes publications from 1970 to early 2019. In the thirty-two works reviewed, we identified the following methodological aspects: study topics, location of the work, duration of the field work and data collection techniques. Subsequently, we reflect on how they understand and develop ethnography as a methodological framework and as text. Finally, we reflect on the possible factors that affect the modest use of ethnography in the study of Mapuche music, a methodology that, in addition to being rarely used in the investigations of the sound expressions of this society, is, in many cases, partially used.
