Beautiful Politics of Music ebook: EPUB met Adobe-DRM

Trova in Yucatan, Mexico

An exploration into the history and practice of trova, a genre of music that is the soul of Yucatan. Yucatecan trova is a music genre comprising a type of romantic song that is considered "e;the soul of Yucatn and Yucatecans."e; This first book on Yucatecan trova offers an insider's view of the history and practice of a treasured cultural heritage. A central theme of Gabriela Vargas-Cetina's ethnography is what she refers to as the "e;beautiful politics of music"e; practiced by Yucatecan trova patrons and organizations, which is a way of asserting the importance of groups and issues through nonconfrontational means. Trova emerged on the peninsula at the end of the nineteenth century and continues to be part of the general urban soundscape in the states of Yucatn and Campeche. Until the 1920s, this music was little known outside Yucatn and became absorbed into the larger Latin American Bolero genre, making it difficult to perceive its uniqueness and relation to life in Yucatn. Vargas-Cetina, a native Yucatecan and trova musician, offers ethnographic insight into the local music scene. With family connections, she embedded herself as a trovadora, and her fieldwork-singing, playing the guitar in a trova group, and extensively researching the genre and talking with fellow enthusiasts and experts-ensued. Trova, like other types of artistic endeavors, is the result of collaboration and social milieu. She describes the dedicated trova clubs, cultural institutions, the Yucatecan economy of agricultural exports, and identity politics that helped the music come about and have maintained it today. Positioned in the larger context of the music of Mexico and Latin America and engaging with theories of modernity and cosmopolitanism, experimental ethnography, and the anthropology of organizations, Beautiful Politics of Music consists of rigorous scholarship. It is also a warm tribute to performers and songs that have inspired many people around the world for more than two centuries.
