This edited volume presents an original analysis of the role of sound in Latin American and Caribbean societies, from the late nineteenth century to the present. The contributors examine the importance of sound in the purveyance of power, gender roles, race, community, religion, and populism. They also demonstrate how sound is essential to the formation of citizenship and nationalism.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"A fascinating collection of articles on the auditory experience and its history in Latin America. They are remarkably diverse in focus and methodology, but unified by careful attention to the importance of sound, and an open-eared and open-minded willingness to reconsider its dimensions and implications."
--Bryan McCann, Georgetown University


"This superb volume brings to light a myriad exciting discoveries: from Brazilian popular music to Bolivian carnival, Alejandra Bronfman and Andrew Grant Wood have assembled a fascinating collection of essays about the intersection of music, sound, radio, and popular culture in Latin America. Never before has Latin America resounded so clearly in a critical anthology."
--RubEn Gallo, Princeton University
