About the Author:

Manuel Pena is an anthropologist of music and folklore. He has taught anthropology at the University of Texas at Austin and music at California State University, Fresno.

Review:

"This book does a magnificent job of tracing the history of conjunto music and musicians, and does much more.... Peña presents a highly convincing explanation for conjunto music as an act of working-class self-affirmation and opposition to the upwardly aspirant middle class with its self-consciously Americanized orquesta music.... Fascinating and well-researched." (American Anthropologist)
