Il n’est pas de kingdom sans hymne, il n’est pas de groupe humain sans musiques : hymnes nationaux, chansons militantes, générationnelles, familiales aiguisent le sentiment d’appartenance, consolident une mémoire commune.

Il s’interroge sur los angeles strength d’attraction de ces musiques qui scellent l’identité des individus et des groupes, en produisant émotionnellement un sentiment d’appartenance. Si los angeles musique contribue à construire les identités, elle a été aussi appelée à les combattre (Wagner construit son antisémitisme à travers los angeles supposée impression maléfique des Juifs dans los angeles musique) ou à les diminuer (Gobineau et ses stéréotypes sur los angeles musique des Noirs).
Livre d’histoire par l. a. musique, Les Résonances de l’ombre s’applique enfin à saisir los angeles montée en puissance d’un « triangle de plomb » dans le goût musical de l’entre-deux-guerres : valorisation de l’origine, lien sacralisé entre une expression musicale, un territoire et une inhabitants, stigmatisation d’un ennemi qui en risk l’intégrité : le fascisme culturel avait envahi les sensibilités.
