The Latin name Salius is the equivalent of Halios (Ἅλιος), the Phaeacian dancer in the Odyssey who loses his athletic competition. Plutarch says that a Salius from Samothrace or Mantinea was reputed to be the legendary founder of the Salian priests, but that the sodality in fact was named from the leaping (Latin salire) of their armed dance.

Resumen

¿Por qué la música ha tenido una presencia tan importante en las sociedades antiguas que conocemos? ¿Cuál es el papel de la música en las sociedades cazadoras-recolectoras del Paleolítico superior? ¿Cómo se concretaban estos comportamientos musicales y ceremoniales? ¿Cómo la musicología y la arqueología pueden encontrar la manera de "arqueologizar" muchos de los elementos esenciales que formaron parte de estos comportamientos sociales? La necesidad de afrontar estas cuestiones implicó un estudio etnoarqueomusicológico profundo de los comportamientos musicales y ceremoniales de las sociedades cazadoras-recolectoras alutiiq, yupik e inupiaq de Alaska.

El objetivo de este trabajo es presentar un conjunto de evidencias esenciales que definen los contextos musicales y ceremoniales que se pueden detectar y analizar mediante las técnicas arqueológicas actuales. Los resultados aportan nuevo conocimiento sobre el análisis arqueológico de unos comportamientos sociales poco estudiados hasta hoy.

The production of sound is a significant human capacity


Use and Sonority of a 23,000-Year-Old Bone Aerophone from Davant Pau Cave (NE of the Iberian Peninsula)

Vol. 56, No. 2 (April 2015), pp. 282-289







Abstract:
The production of sound is a significant human capacity that is used, through the generation of feelings and emotions, for conditioning social and biological reproduction. Despite this elevance and although several hundred instruments have been attributed to the production of sound along the Upper Paleolithic, our knowledge of how and in what contexts music was played during this period is still quite limited. In this paper, the aerophone found in the Davant Pau excavation, in the northeast part of the Iberian Peninsula, dated to 23,000 years cal BP, is studied to infer, through experimentation and microwear analysis, how it was made and used. It is a whistle-type instrument that would have allowed the production of an almost monotonic sound, which could be acutely syncopated, generating a fast rhythm. This is a type of sound most probably used in collective ceremonies in which the coordination of the participants was important, as observed in several ethnographic studies of hunter-gatherer groups.

4,000 year old 'baby rattle' among Kültepe finds


4,000 year old 'baby rattle' among Kültepe finds






A baby rattle has been found in the Kültepe Kaniş-Karum trade colony, where excavations have been continuing since 1948 in the central Anatolian province of Kayseri. A baby rattle has been found in the Kültepe Kaniş-Karum trade colony,  where excavations have been continuing since 1948 in the central  Anatolian province of Kayseri [Credit: DHA] A team from Ankara University Archaeology Department, headed by Professor Fikri Kulakoğlu, has been working in the area and unearthed the rattle, which dates back to 2,000 B.C. Kulakoğlu said works had been continuing there for 69 years. He said, “Archaeological excavations have been carried out in Kültepe since 1948. Here it is possible to find what we [commonly] find in houses today. [We have found] Pots and pans, glasses, oven, seats and etc. We have seen all of these things in the excavations for nearly 70 years. There are also very interesting objects. We have found a toy, which we estimate to date back to 2,000 B.C., being the oldest in the world.” The baby rattle is estimated to date back to 2,000 B.C [Credit: DHA] The professor said more than 50,000 people were living in Kültepe 4,000 years ago, adding, “There are very fine objects from a big metropolitan. We sometimes think the population was above 70,000. Some of them were Assyrians, but most of were Anatolians. Of course, not all of them were adults. Among them are young people, children and babies. We naturally found objects that we associate with babies. For example, one of them is a rattle. It is made of kiln and has pebbles inside. It makes a sound when it is shaken just like baby rattles we all know today.”
