Crimean Tatars during the Crimean War

(p.88) 4 Overhearing Indigenous Silence
Hearing the Crimean War

Maria Sonevytsky

Oxford University Press

Sonevytsky’s chapter considers the noteworthy lack of historical sources pertaining to Crimean Tatar experiences of the War. It attempts, through analysis of what remains in sonic form, to recover experiences that have largely disappeared from cultural archives through a method of “overhearing” Crimean Tatars in outsider accounts. The chapter examines one British account of the Crimean War, and one Crimean Tatar “émigré song” anthologized by Soviet ethnographers. A closing section discusses Russia’s present-day annexation of Crimea and contemporary efforts to use musical memory as a means of political resilience.
