Short biography

Wim van der Meer studied anthropology and musicology at the Universities of Amsterdam and Delhi. He did his Ph.D. at the University of Utrecht in 1977 on the subject of "Hindustani Music in the Twentieth Century" (publ. 1980). In India he has received extended and intensive training in Hindustani classical vocal music since 1970 under the illustrious Pandit Dilip Chandra Vedi, one of the most knowledgeable musicians of the twentieth century, and himself a disciple of stalwarts like Bhaskar Buwa Bakhle, Faiyaz Khan and Alladiya Khan.

Wim van der Meer presently teaches cultural musicology and world music studies at the Department of Musicology of the University of Amsterdam. His recent publications include the "Raga Guide" (co-author), a work that received international acclaimin more than 70 music journals and newspapers. From 2005 to 2012 he was the chief editor of the Journal of the Indian Musicological Society. In collaboration with Dr. Suvarnalata Rao of the NCPA (Mumbai) he has been working on the Music in Motion project (see link at the bottom of this page), in which all the major raga-s of North Indian classical music are documented with recordings, analyses and motion graphics. Apart from Indian music he also does research in the field of Brazilian music. His work on computer assisted research in musicology is internationally known. Wim van der Meer's activities can also be monitored on the websites below. The list of publications on this page is far from complete, the cms we're using is not very user friendly..
