Cuba is a land of music. This book describes the five basic families of Cuban music and how they developed. “Musical Genres of Cuba” discusses Son, Rumba, Danzon, Cuban song, and Punto guajiro.
You will learn how Cuban music is different than its African roots. How Spain influenced music, and what other countries played a role. Why “salsa music” wouldn’t exist without Cuban music as its roots, and many other facts.
When you are finished with the book, you will have a thorough understanding of Cuban music. This is a must read book for not only musicians and musicologists, but also anyone with an interest in Cuba. You can’t study Cuba without understanding the deep influence music played in the development of the country.
