  • In Memoriam: Leonardo Acosta (1933–2016)
    • Abstract: Leonardo Acosta passed away on September 23, 2016, at 83 years of age in Havana, Cuba, the city of his birth. Known for his achievements as a musician, ethnomusicologist, literary critic, journalist, and narrator, Acosta received the Cuban National Prize for Literature in 2006 and for Music in 2014, both for lifetime achievement. He played saxophone with jazz orchestras lead by musicians such as Benny Moré and Rey Díaz Calvet and helped found the Club Cubano de Jazz in 1958 following a trip to New York City. In the 1970s, he was one of the founders of the Grupo de Experimentación Sonora del ICAIC, writing film music under the direction of Leo Brouwer. In addition to his musicological writings, he wrote for the ... Read More

  • Highland Afro-Ecuadorian Bomba and Identity along the Black Pacific at the
           Turn of the Twenty-First Century
    • Abstract: Building on Paul Gilroy’s (1993) notion of the black Atlantic, Heidi Feldman (2005) has suggested that perhaps something unique is occurring along the periphery of the African diaspora. The Afro-descendant communities of the black Pacific, as she dubs this geo-conceptual space, are characterized by an attenuated historical-cultural proximity with Africa, given local sociohistorical and sociopolitical circumstances. As such, the negotiation and, as in the case of the Afro-Peruvian revival, reconstruction of black ethnic identity and culture within the black Pacific occurs in relation not to Africa per se but to the black Atlantic as a surrogate for Africa.Following Feldman’s call to chart the black Pacific, this ...

  • “Somos la mezcla perfecta, la combinación más pura, cubanos, la más
           grande creación”: Grooves, Pleasures, and Politics in Today’s Cuba
    • Abstract: Existing research describes contemporary Cuban popular music, and especially timba, as an expression of political critique (e.g., Torres 2012; Perna 2005; Moore 2001; Baker 2011b), gender politics (e.g., López Cano 2007; Hernandez-Reguant 2006; Perna 2005, 192–217), and the rise of black culture and Afro-Cuban religion (e.g., Vaughan 2012; Fernandes 2003; Perna 2005, 161–189; West-Durán 2004; Moore 2006, 197–225), and as a representation of either hybrid or local identity.1 Much of this scholarship situates the politics of Cuban music within that state’s perceived socialist ideology (e.g., Torres 2012, 227–231; Perna 2005), thus paying less attention to the increase of patriotism and nationalism on the island since ...

  • Músicos y tambores en la etnomusicología de la transculturación:
           Fernando Ortiz, los tamboreros de Regla y la etnografía afrocubana
    • Abstract: A diferencia del “paradigma iniciático” y su producción de una narrativa testimonial sobre el modo de acceso y captura de un texto cultural preexistente (Clifford [1983] 1995), en la narrativa “realista” los mediadores de la producción de sentido (antropólogos y “colaboradores”) desaparecen para que el texto presente la cultura como dato anterior a la mediación, es decir, como totalidad no mediada, continua y sin fisuras (Geertz 1989), en la cual se asume una misma posición y una supuesta “convergencia de intereses” con los “representados” (Sklodowska 1993, 83). Al igual que para la teoría de la “transculturación” del polígrafo cubano Fernando Ortiz y su aplicación a la narrativa latinoamericana por Ángel Rama, el ... Read More

  • Sun, Sea, and Sound: Music and Tourism in the Circum-Caribbean by Timothy
           Rommen and Daniel T. Neely (review)
    • Abstract: Music and tourism in the Caribbean are often linked in the popular imagination but have rarely been studied together, at least in the field of ethnomusicology. As Timothy Rommen points out in the introduction to Sun, Sea, and Sound, much scholarly work has been done on visual aspects of tourism, leaving sound a largely unacknowledged, untapped subject of research. With this in mind, the book addresses various issues relating to music and tourism throughout the circum-Caribbean, which extends, in this case, at least as far as northeastern Brazil and the southern United States.Divided into themed sections on the mass tourism market, patterns of musical (and human) circulation, insider and outsider tourism, music ...

  • Sounds of the Citizens: Dancehall and Community in Jamaica by Anne M.
           Galvin (review)
    • Abstract: Anne M. Galvin’s Sounds of the Citizens offers a necessary, ethnographically grounded update to the substantial literature on Jamaican popular music and culture—and dancehall reggae in particular. For some two decades, cultural anthropologists and other scholars have worked to explicate the links between dancehall and Jamaican society, especially with regard to local hierarchies of race, class, and gender (Cooper 1993; Stolzoff 2000; Thomas 2004; Stanley Niaah 2010), but Galvin’s signal contribution concerns dancehall’s role in Kingston’s inner-city communities since the neoliberal turn in Jamaican politics. Focusing on forms of local patronage and moral economies of giving in the first decade of the new ... Read More

  • Carlos Aldama’s Life in Batá: Cuba, Diaspora, and the Drum by Umi
           Vaughn and Carlos Aldama (review)
    • Abstract: Carlos Aldama’s Life in Batá represents a collaborative effort between the iconic Cuban Santería ritual drummer Carlos Aldama and the African American anthropologist, dancer, and musician Umi Vaughn. A founding member of the Conjunto Folklórico Nacional de Cuba in 1962, Aldama settled in the San Francisco Bay Area in 2000. Soon afterward, Vaughn initiated an extended study of batá as Aldama’s yamboki (apprentice), during which he not only learned about rhythms, techniques, and context but also documented and “exemplified the importance of master-apprentice relationships in transmitting musical knowledge and cultural tradition” (9). Through extensive informal and themed interviews translated from Spanish “with an ... Read More

  • The Militant Song Movement in Latin America: Chile, Uruguay, and Argentina
           ed. by Pablo Vila (review)
    • Abstract: The Militant Song Movement in Latin America offers a reconsideration of the emotional, musical, and cultural dimensions of political song in Chile, Argentina, and Uruguay from the 1950s to the 1970s. Editor Pablo Vila proposes the notion of militant song in order to deconstruct standard narratives about “protest,” which he suggests are an inaccurate representation of the way music functioned in politics during this period (3). The militant framework is not explicitly addressed in every chapter, but it applies to each in that they all reconceptualize existing narratives about Latin American political song, using tools such as analysis of gender, sonic characteristics, performance histories, close readings of song ...

  • El Sistema: Orchestrating Venezuela’s Youth by Geoffrey Baker
           (review)
    • Abstract: “Due to the nature of this research, I am unable to thank my collaborators in Venezuela by name”—these words head the acknowledgments of Geoffrey Baker’s study El Sistema: Orchestrating Venezuela’s Youth. They hint at a singular work of journalism and scholarship that builds on interviews with El Sistema associates—conductors, administrators, students, teachers—whose names Baker omits or changes because of informants’ fear of retaliation from José Antonio Abreu. Baker’s aims go “beyond an examination of the Venezuelan program to encompass a broader critical analysis of the youth symphony orchestra as a vehicle for a rounded, inclusive education in music and citizenship” (5). The study is structured around ... Read More

  • Roy Cape: A Life on the Calypso and Soca Bandstand by Jocelyne Guilbault
           and Roy Cape (review)
    • Abstract: Roy Cape is arguably one of the hardest-working musicians in the West Indian carnival music scene, yet his exhaustive career as a musician and bandleader has been only superficially appreciated to date. Together with the ethnomusicologist Jocelyne Guilbault, the two have produced an ethnographic biography of his life on the road as a musician and eventual bandleader of the well-known Roy Cape Kaiso All Stars. Guilbault and Cape produce a work that is innovative in its methodology and approach. For his part, Cape reconstructs his life narrative, as a child in the orphanage, through apprenticeship in the calypso tents, to an exhausting life of work as a musician both at home and on tour. His memories of performances ... Read More

  • Spinning Mambo into Salsa: Caribbean Dance in Global Commerce by Juliet
           McMains (review)
    • Abstract: The Caribbean dance called salsa has inspired a small flood of English-language scholarly publications in the past decade. In journals, edited volumes, and monographs, scholars have addressed the dance’s local and transnational aspects (e.g., Hutchinson 2014; Pietrobrunough 2006), its relationship to Puerto Rican and broader Latino identities (e.g., García 2013; Flores 2004), and female dancers’ experience of its gendered structure and aesthetics (e.g., Borland 2009; Skinner 2008), among other themes. Juliet McMains, herself a seasoned ballroom dancer and longtime salsera, joins this list with her most recent monograph, Spinning Mambo into Salsa. Examining salsa from the mambo era of the 1950s through its ... Read More

  • Songs That Make the Road Dance: Courtship and Fertility Music of the
           Tz’utujil Maya by Linda O’Brien-Rothe (review)
    • Abstract: Researchers sometimes joke, fantasize, or even theorize what they might uncover if a time machine would allow them to travel back in time (Hebert and McCollum 2014), yet they less often imagine the possibility of studying the future. What would we find if we returned to “the field,” say, forty years from now? O’Brien’s Songs That Make the Road Dance offers a glimpse of that scenario. The monograph appears in print forty years after her first robust ethnographic study of Tz’utujil music, the 1975 dissertation “Songs of the Face of the Earth: Ancestor Songs of the Tzutuhil-Maya of Santiago Atitlan, Guatemala.”Between 1975 and 2015, O’Brien mostly contributed to ethnomusicology as an independent scholar. Researchers ... Read More

  • Between Nostalgia and Apocalypse: Popular Music and the Staging of Brazil
           by Daniel B. Sharp (review)
    • Abstract: Apocalypse is a more appropriate context for musical studies in general, and of Brazil in particular, than the author Daniel Sharp might have imagined when writing or publishing this study, Between Nostalgia and Apocalypse, given the political, demographic, and cultural upheavals we have already seen in 2016 (and who knows what else may have happened by the time these words are in print). Brazil has undergone a regime change that part of the population regards as a coup d’état and the other part as the reasonable legal removal of a demonstrably corrupt government. The Brazilian Northeast is presently, and has been for most of the past century, both the most underdeveloped part of the nation and the focus of ... Read More

  • Musical Life in Guyana: History and Politics of Controlling Creativity by
           Vibert C. Cambridge (review)
    • Abstract: Like its close neighbors Suriname (formerly Dutch Guiana) and French Guiana, Guyana (formerly British Guiana) has long seemed something of an anomaly. All three territories represent exceptions to the history of Iberian colonial rule that defined the rest of South America, and all three remain culturally more Caribbean than Latin American. Like the other Guianas, Guyana has yet to exert an influence on the popular music of the wider world comparable to that of Cuba, Jamaica, Trinidad and Tobago, or Haiti (or even certain of the smaller Caribbean islands, such as Martinique, Guadeloupe, and Dominica). Indeed, Guyana has at times been derided by observers from other parts of the region for a supposed lack of musical ... Read More

  • Chilean New Song: The Political Power of Music, 1960s–1973 by J.
           Patrice McSherry (review)
    • Abstract: J. Patrice McSherry’s elegantly written book is a study of the early years of Chilean Nueva Canción. Combining archival research with interviews with artists, mediators, and scholars, Chilean New Song: The Political Power of Music, 1960s–1973 attempts to understand the political impact of Nueva Canción from its emergence during Salvador Allende’s first presidential campaigns until Augusto Pinochet’s bloody coup d’état of September 11, 1973. A rather silent book, however, Chilean New Song provides neither musical analysis nor supporting audios, mainly focusing on the political dimension of the music—a reflection, perhaps, of the author’s disciplinary home in political science.McSherry’s thesis is that Nueva Canción ...
