Caribbean Currents: : Caribbean Music from Rumba to Reggae, Hardback Book

Caribbean Currents: : Caribbean Music from Rumba to Reggae Hardback

Part of the Studies In Latin America & Car series

Description

First published in 1995, Caribbean Currents has become the definitive guide to the distinctive musics of this region of the world.

This third edition of the award-winning book is substantially updated and expanded, featuring thorough coverage of new developments, such as the global spread of reggaeton and bachata, the advent of music videos, the restructuring of the music industry, and the emergence of new dance styles.

It also includes many new illustrations and links to accompanying video footage. The authors succinctly and perceptively situate the musical styles and developments in the context of themes of gender and racial dynamics, sociopolitical background, and diasporic dimensions.

Caribbean Currents showcases the rich and diverse musics of Cuba, Puerto Rico, the Dominican Republic, Jamaica, Trinidad, the French Caribbean, the lesser Antilles, and their transnational communities in the United States and elsewhere to provide an engaging panorama of this most dynamic aspect of Caribbean culture.
