In this introduction article, we present the origins of this Special Issue publication and set out the analytical themes underpinning it. The articles in this collection all focus on music and dance in and from the Global South. The central analytical theme connecting the contributions is that of boundaries and the role of dance and music in transgressing and reworking sets of boundaries. This refers to the boundaries of methodological conventions, the boundaries that are often drawn between what are deemed private and public spheres, the role of gender in relation to boundaries as well the spatial dimension of transgressing and reworking boundaries - including the emplaced aspects of dance and music.
