Thinking about Music from Latin America: Issues and Questions traces the path of musicology in Latin American during the 20th century, presenting a series of case studies to illustrate the ways in which Latin American music has interacted with social and global processes. It cont...ributes to the development of paradigms of cultural analysis that originated outside of Latin America by testing them in the Latin American musical context, while also exploring how specifically Latin American models can contribute to broader cultural analysis. Focusing on Chilean cases, the book addresses such topics as popular music, post-colonialism, women in Latin American music, tradition and modernity, musical counterculture, globalization, and identity construction through music. The case studies shed new light on topics such as the origins of Chilean New Song, Violeta Parra's and Victor Jara's contributions to Chilean music, and mechanisms of colonialism and post-colonialism in Latin America.
