History / Biographical Note

Biographical / Historical

Mary Frances Dunham worked as an ethnomusicologist at Columbia University. She studied music composition in New York and Paris. She earned a Master of Arts degree in Teaching Classical Languages from Harvard University and one in Indic Studies from Columbia University. Dunham wrote articles and co-edited works specializing in the music of South Asia. During the 1960s, Dunham was introduced to jarigan songs when Jasimuddin, an eminent Bangladeshi poet and collector of folk song texts, asked her to make musical notations of songs he was gathering for his book, Jarigan (1968). She received a grant from the Ford Foundation for further field work and research in order to prepare material for her book on Jarigan.
