Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Clark has masterfully collected thirteen essays that discuss the various aspects of Tex Mex, Central American and Latin American music. Major personalities from these musical cultures that are discussed in detail range from Selena to Carmen Miranda. Vast in scope, the contributors engage with divergent musical styles such as Latin dance and the national rock of Argentina.

Synopsis:

Author of two books on Issac Albeniz, including Issac Albeniz: A Guide to Research (1998), Walter Aaron Clark has compiled thirteen essays that discuss the various aspects of Latin American music. The essays cover the social and political impact the music generated as well as the rhythmic development of the various genres. In this essential book, significant personalities, including Carmen Miranda, are discussed. The scope of the contributors is vast as divergent musical styles such as the Macarena dace craze, Bob Marley's reggae music and the seductive strains of the tango are analyzed.
