  • Jazz Argentino -  La música "negra" del país "blanco" - (2015)


¿How music has historically been constructed as "black" in a nation that has been characterized by denying the African influence on their culture do? From this question a thoughtful approach to the history and present of Jazz in Argentina, through interviews with musicians from different generations and styles is proposed. With a foreword by renowned researcher in popular culture Pablo Alabarces, this book addresses threads that link the popular music with the processes of social significance, miscegenation and identity, without ignoring the recent debates on the local "African" culture and space it occupies in the so-called Black Atlantic.
