Synopsis

"Caribbean Currents" presents an engaging panorama of the rich and diverse musics of the Caribbean region. This expanded and updated edition of the award-winning book covers recent developments in the region's music, such as the emergence of reggaeton and timba and includes a new and extensive study of Jamaican dancehall. Among the other additions are twenty-seven illustrations. The authors cover the historical development and current forms of the musics of Cuba, Puerto Rico, the Dominican Republic, Jamaica, Trinidad, the French Caribbean, the lesser Antilles, and their transnational communities in the United States and elsewhere. They also succinctly and perceptively situate the musical music styles and developments in the context of themes of gender and racial dynamics, socio-political background, and diasporic dimensions. Written in a style that is at once readable, entertaining, and scholarly, "Caribbean Currents" is an ideal resource for students, musicians, and general readers.
