This is the first in-depth study of banda music written in Spanish language.
Helena Simonett offers a richly contextualized musicological and historical analysis of banda that encompasses the music's roots in 19th-century northwestern Mexico and its development among the Sinaloan rural and urban working classes. In the early 1990s a modernized version, called technobanda, emerged as the single most popular commercial music in Los Angeles, California.
Simonett's careful ethnographic inquiry into banda's contemporary musical practices north and south of the U.S.-Mexico border sheds new light on how expressive culture both generates and reflects intersecting social identities and provides evidence about urban society and the role of commodities in everyday life.
