  • México de mis inventos: Salon Music, Lyric Theater, and Nostalgia in Cine
           de añoranza porfiriana
    • Abstract: The cine de añoranza porfiriana (films of Porfirian nostalgia) genre is an anomaly in Mexican national cinema. Produced almost exclusively at the beginning of the 1940s, during the Mexican cinema's so-called Golden Age, the genre includes romantic comedies set at the end of the nineteenth century and focuses on the coupling of two members of the upper class. The narrative is filled with comedic mishaps and romantic misunderstandings, ending with the couple united in marital bliss. The peculiarity of the genre, however, lies in its backdrop: the Porfiriato, the oppressive thirty-five-year dictatorship of Mexican president Porfirio Díaz (1876–1911), which led to the Mexican Revolution of 1910.1 Setting a romantic ...

  • Cubanidad "In Between": The Transnational Cuban Alternative Music Scene
    • Abstract: Yo te bailo un rock and roll,aunque la rumba me llama,con los pies en Nueva York,y el corazón en la Habana,Oh la Habana, oh la Habana.I dance a rock and roll for you,although rumba is calling me,standing in New York,but with my heart in Havana,Oh Havana, oh Havana.—David Torrens, "Ni de aquí ni de allá"In February 2012 the music project Habanization visited Miami to perform at the Manuel Artime Theater (see Silot Bravo 2012a). Habanization was a collective formed in Havana by Cuban songwriters who had emigrated in the 1990s. Fifteen years later, they had returned to live on the island or were living between the island and other countries. They took advantage of a certain flexibility enjoyed by ... Read More

  • A son de clave: La dimensión afrodiaspórica de la puertorriqueñidad en
           la música popular, 1929–1940
    • Abstract: Últimamente los boleros y los sones parecen competir con ella [la plena] prevaleciendo en el gusto del público y dejando olvidada a la danza, el seis y poco menos, al valse criollo. También hemos advertido que algunos compositores le quitan su originalidad interpolando en ella aires de rumba o de otros bailes exóticos.Los boleros, los boleros-son, las rumbas, los sones y las guarachas fueron repertorio casi obligado en las presentaciones de muchos de los conjuntos y bandas en Puerto Rico durante las primeras décadas del siglo XX. Tan es así que en su afamado e influyente ensayo Elogio de la plena, Tomás Blanco (1935) arremetió contra los bailes "exóticos" al arengar a las orquestinas a desarrollar la plena, pero ... Read More

  • Southern Streams: Some Thoughts about Musicology and Popular Music Studies
           in Latin America
    • Abstract: Quem disse que eu me mudei? / Não importa que a tenham demolido: / A gente continua morando na velha casa / em que nasceu.Who said that I have moved? / It does not matter that it has been demolished: / We carry on living in the same old house / in which we were born.Since the beginning of the twenty-first century, Latin American popular music studies have shown a diversity of approaches and interchanges among researchers, going beyond national borders to rethink and offer different approaches for the field. This music has been studied from the points of view of various disciplines, notably music, social history, communication (media studies), and literature. Multidisciplinary coexistence is healthy even when there ... Read More

  • The Inevitable Bandstand: The State Band of Oaxaca and the Politics of
           Sound by Charles V. Heath (review)
    • Abstract: Musicologists who work on Mexican music tend to focus on either religious institutions or nationalist composers, whereas ethnomusicologists often concentrate on folk traditions or popular styles. Charles Heath's The Inevitable Bandstand is thus a refreshing contribution to the field, as there are few studies on civil or state-sponsored musical institutions in Mexico. The volume examines the musical life of the city and state of Oaxaca, which have had an important influence on Mexico's development, in a historical and political context, focusing on the Banda de Música del Estado de Oaxaca (BME).The band's origins go back to the early colonial period. It successfully navigated more than three centuries of political ... Read More

  • Negro Soy Yo: Hip Hop and Raced Citizenship in Neoliberal Cuba by Marc D.
           Perry (review)
    • Abstract: Marc Perry's Negro Soy Yo: Hip Hop and Raced Citizenship in Neoliberal Cuba is both a critical history and an ethnography of the emergence of the Cuban hip-hop movement against the backdrop of the country's post-Soviet transition to market liberalization. This account of cultural production and black self-making that emerged in the 1990s from Cuba's Special Period of economic crisis is a necessary guide for understanding the present and future of racialized social stratification on the island. The historical scope manages to address the most recent scandals involving Cuban hip-hop artists and intellectuals, placing them within the longue durée of the Cuban revolutionary struggle and black liberation struggles ...

  • Hispanic Folk Music of New Mexico and the Southwest: A Portrait of a
           People by John Donald Robb (review)
    • Abstract: Hispanic Folk Music of New Mexico and the Southwest: A Portrait of a People is a facsimile edition republished by arrangement with the University of New Mexico's (UNM) John Donald Robb Musical Trust. The trust was established in 1989 following the deaths of the composer and his wife, Harriet. The trust's mission (as stated on its website), in collaboration with the University of New Mexico, is "to support the music and musical legacy of John Donald Robb, furthering his inspiring commitment to education in addition to advancing the understanding of music of the Southwest."As far as Robb's musical legacy goes, the book is indeed problematic. James Leger put forth a thorough peer review some thirty years ago; I agree ... Read More

  • The Pilgrimage to the Sanctuary of the Lord of Qoyllur Rit'i: The Walk
           Experience by Zoila Mendoza (review)
    • Abstract: This documentary by the Peruvian anthropologist Zoila Mendoza is a great contribution to the archive on the Pilgrimage to the Sanctuary of the Lord of Qoyllur Rit'i, the largest pilgrimage in southern Peru. An average of fifty thousand Quechua and mestizo believers from villages, towns, and cities gather each year around a Catholic temple located at the bottom of the QollquepunKu and Sinakara glaciers. This feast takes place in the months of May and June. Most of the visual archive, including photo essays and documentaries, has addressed the days of celebration at the sanctuary. To my knowledge, Mendoza's documentary is the first one that covers the pilgrimage per se and the events that occur at the sacred place. ... Read More

  • The Sounds of Latinidad: Immigrants Making Music and Creating Culture in a
           Southern City by Samuel K. Byrd (review)
    • Abstract: Latino musical cultures in the United States are a relatively new area of study in ethnomusicology.
      Authors and scholars such as Madrid, Washburne, Sheehy, Pacini Hernandez, Ragland, Hutchinson, and Rivera have worked to establish Latino music studies as a serious area of inquiry with its own set of peculiarities that diverge from Latin American music studies as a whole. Studies on salsa, mariachi, regional Mexican music, Latin jazz, reggaeton, and other genres have explored issues of transnationalism, immigration, hybridity, cultural preservation, political disenfranchisement, interethnic collaborations, cosmopolitanism, and pan-latinidad, among others. Logically, the geographic focus of these ethnographies has ... Read More

  • Los Lobos: Dream in Blue by Chris Morris (review)
    • Abstract: Los Lobos: Dream in Blue by Chris Morris tells the story of Los Lobos, the Los Angeles–based, Mexican American rock group best known for their soundtrack to La Bamba (1987), the biographical film of the life of Richie Valens. The text was written with the cooperation of the band, and as a result, it relies primarily on accounts of events conveyed to the author through interviews with the group's members. The slim volume of only about 160 pages appears to be aimed at fans of the group and US popular music in general. Accordingly, it is written in a journalistic, accessible style, devoid of technical language and critical engagement with scholarly texts.The main contributions of Los Lobos: Dream in Blue to literature ...
