MUS 403 Latin American Music

Latin America’s music spans indigenous Andean panpipe music, African-derived carnival music, Haitian voodoo ritual, Brazilian samba, and hip-hop music in Latin American urban centres, among others, and reflects the dynamic cultural fusions of past and present. Through lecture, audio-visual analysis and experiential musical exercises, this course explores the socio-cultural, historical and political impact of Latin American musical genres, and investigates music as a tool for healing, identity negotiation, political fomentation, and group expression.
