Music in Mexico. Experiencing Music, Expressing Culture

Acaba de ser lanzado el libro Music in Mexico. Experiencing Music, Expressing Culture, de la autoría de Alejandro L. Madrid y editado por Oxford University Press.

“The complex legacy of Mexico’s ethnic past and geographic location have shaped the country and its culture. In Music in Mexico, Alejandro L. Madrid uses extensive fieldwork, interviews with performers, eyewitness accounts of performances, and vivid illustrations to guide students through modern-day music practices. Applying three themes-ethnic identity, migration, and media influences-the text explores the music that Mexicans grow up listening to and shows how these traditions are the result of long-standing transnational dialogues. Packaged with a 40-minute audio CD containing musical examples, the text features numerous listening activities that engage students with the music.”
