Le reggae, remède contre la marginalisation ? Construction de la jeunesse urbaine à travers la musique (Port-Vila)

Abstract : With the increasing urbanization and rapid industrial development of Port-Vila, the capital of Vanuatu, certain forms of poverty and social fragility have emerged. These changes are also reflected in urban music practices, which play a crucial role in the lives of many young people. Music is one of the ways in which youth can address marginalization. With the possibilities afforded by a number of associations, which provide musical instruments, classes and rehearsal studios, music has become more accessible to the young. It is a leisure activity with educational aspects, a means of socialization beyond social and cultural borders. It also cements networks between musicians that enrich or replace former family and community ties. Finally music offers opportunities for public expression, peaceful political demands, dreams of freedom, etc. Studying these roles of music as forms of agency for young people can shed light on many aspects of their lives in the city of Port-Vila today.
