About the Author:

John Donald Robb (1892-1989), professor and dean emeritus of the College of Fine Arts at the University of New Mexico (1942-1957), was responsible for the growth of fine arts at the University of New Mexico in the 1940s and 1950s. A composer of stage, classical, and electronic music, Robb was also the author of Hispanic Folk Music of New Mexico and the Southwest: A Self-Portrait of a People (UNM Press).

Review:

"This is a book of scores that marry traditional New Mexican Spanish folk songs with art and mainstream folk techniques. The compilation brings awareness of a mestizo people and history, part of the fundamental fabric of US identity, a people largely invisible until the last half-century. These Spanish-language songs, shared here with Western art techniques of a fittingly vintage nature, result in a new listening experience."--Brenda M. Romero, coeditor of Dancing across Borders: Danzas y Bailes Mexicanos
