The Brazilian sound : samba, bossa nova, and the popular music of Brazil by Chris McGowan( Book )

2 editions published between 1998 and 2009 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"At the second International Song Festival in 1967, Milton Nascimento had three songs accepted for competition. He had no intention of performing them - he hated the idea of intense competition. In fact, Nascimento might never have appeared at all if Eumir Deodato hadn't threatened not to write the arrangements for his songs if he didn't perform at least two of them. Nascimento went on to win the festival's best performer award, all three of his songs were included soon afterward on his first album, and the rest is history. This is only one anecdote from The Brazilian Sound, an encyclopedic survey of Brazilian popular music that ranges over samba, bossa nova, MPB, jazz and instrumental music and tropical rock, as well as the music of the Northeast. The authors have interviewed a wide variety of performers like Nascimento, Gilberto Gil, Carlinhos Brown, and Airto Moreira, U.S. fans, like Lyle Mays, George Duke, and Paul Winter, executive André Midani; and music historian Zuza Homem de Mello, just to name a few. First published in 1991, The Brazilian Sound received enthusiastic attention both in the United States and abroad. For this new edition, the authors have expanded their examination of the historical roots of Brazilian music, added new photographs, amplified their discussion of social issues like racism, updated the maps, and added a new final chapter highlighting the most recent trends in Brazilian music. The authors have expanded their coverage of the axé music movement and included profiles of significant emerging artists like Marisa Monte, Chico Cesar, and Daniela Mercury."--Publisher's description
Ethical borders : NAFTA, globalization, and Mexican migration by Bill Ong Hing( Book )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This work is a new approach to addressing undocumented Mexican migration through substantial investment in Mexico's infrastructure and economy. In his topical new book, the author asks, why do undocumented immigrants from Mexico continue to enter the United States and what would discourage this surreptitious traffic? An expert on immigration law and policy, he examines the relationship between NAFTA, globalization, and undocumented migration, and he considers the policy options for controlling immigration. He develops an ethical rationale for opening up the U.S./Mexican border, as well as improving conditions in Mexico so that its citizens would have little incentive to migrate. He insists that reforming NAFTA is vital to ameliorating much of the poverty that drives undocumented immigration and he points to the European Union's immigration and economic development policies as a model for North America. He considers the worldwide economic crisis and the social problems that attend labor migration. He argues for a spectrum of changes, including: a new vision of border enforcement; a broader view of the visa system; a path to citizenship for undocumented migrants; and consideration of a guest worker program. He also situates NAFTA and its effects in the larger, and rapidly shifting, context of globalization, particularly the recent rise of China as the world's economic giant. Showing how NAFTA's unintended consequences have been detrimental to Mexico, he argues that the United States is ethically bound to address the problems in a way that puts prosperity within the grasp of all North Americans

Caribbean migration to Western Europe and the United States : essays on incorporation, identity, and citizenship by Ana Margarita Cervantes-Rodríguez( Book )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Caribbean Migration to Western Europe and the United States features a diverse group of scholars from across academic disciplines studying the transnational paths of Caribbean migration. How has the colonial path of the Caribbean influenced migration with regard to power relations, ethnic identities and transnational processes?" "Through a series of case studies, the contributors to this volume examine the experiences of Caribbean immigrants to Spain, France, the United Kingdom and the Netherlands as well as the United States. They show the demographic, socioeconomic, political and cultural impact migrants have, as well as their role in the development of transnational social fields. Caribbean Migration to Western Europe and the United States also examines how contrasting discourses of democracy and racism, xenophobia and globalization shape issues pertaining to citizenship and identity."--Jacket

Maya Achi marimba music in Guatemala by Sergio Navarrete Pellicer( Book )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For the Achi, one of the several Mayan ethnic groups indigenous to Guatemala, the music of the marimba serves not only as a form of entertainment but also as a form of communication, a vehicle for memory, and an articulation of cultural identity. Sergio Navarrete Pellicer examines the marimba tradition?the confluence of African musical influences, Spanish colonial power, and Indian ethnic assimilation?as a driving force in the dynamics of cultural continuity and change in Rabinal, the heart of Achi culture and society. By examining the performance and consumption of marimba music as essential parts of a system of social interaction, religious practice, and ethnic identification, Navarrete Pellicer reveals how the strains of the marimba resonate with the spiritual yearnings and cultural negotiations of the Achi as they try to come to terms with the violence and economic hardship wrought by their colonial past."--Publisher's website
Sounds of the modern nation : music, culture, and ideas in post-revolutionary Mexico by Alejandro L Madrid( Book )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Sounds of the Modern Nation explores the development of modernist and avant-garde art music styles and aesthetics in Mexico in relation to the social and cultural changes that affected the country after the 1910-1920 revolution. Alejandro Madrid argues that these modernist works provide insight into the construction of individual and collective identities based on new ideas about modernity and nationality. Instead of depicting a dichotomy between modernity and nationalism, Madrid reflects on the multiple intersections between these two ideas and the dialogic ways through which these notions acquired meaning." "Madrid challenges the view that Latin American modernist music and other arts were mere imitations of European trends, advancing instead the argument that Latin American artists resignified European ideas according to their specific historical and cultural circumstances. His work shows how microtonal and futurist music, modernist and avant-garde aesthetics, as well as indigenist and indianist ideas entered a process of negotiation that ultimately shaped the ideological framework of twentieth-century Mexico."--Jacket
American conversations : Puerto Ricans, white ethnics, and multicultural education by Ellen Bigler( Book )

1 edition published in 1999 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Growing numbers of working-class Puerto Ricans are migrating from larger mainland metropolitan areas into smaller, ""safer"" communities in search of a better quality of life for themselves and their families. What they may also encounter in moving to such communities is a discourse of exclusion that associates their differences and their lower socioeconomic class with a lack of effort and an unwillingness to assimilate into mainstream culture. In this ethnographic study of a community in conflict, educator and anthropologist Ellen Bigler examines such discourses as she explores one city'
