Course Title
Nationalism in Latin Amer Music

Description of Course:


This is an interdisciplinary course entitled Nationalism in Latin America. The course neither presumes nor requires prior experience as a musician or performer. From time to time we have performers in our class and they are welcome to explore applications of the musical cultures of Latin America. By nationalism can mean several things: the indigenous music of the Amerindian peoples present in the Americas long before Europeans arrived, the blend of national musics which developed in colonial times, and music that is associated with politics. We will delve into each of these areas. Our course will combine the study of texts and articles with in class listening.

Your professor is an active practitioner of Latin American music on the classical guitar.

Required Texts:

Readings on E - reserves from texts and articles focusing on Latin American music and culture.
Listening outside of class via the Mcdermott Naxos music library which is available to you all.
