|Description||“Latin American music” designates a current of diverse musical styles evolving over centuries, but is in fact a 20th-century invention. Coined by musicologists in the 1930s, it was boosted within and beyond Latin America by commercial recordings, folklore research, European nightlife, international diplomacy, and experimental composition. This colloquium features historians and musicologists who will shed light on unexplored transnational and global geographies of the musical signifier “Latin American music.” |
