Praise for the First Edition: "Professor Manuel is a superb ethnomusicologist with several important books to his credit. He is well versed in the intricacies of hybrid music forms on the Caribbean... This is an excellent summary volume on Caribbean music." —Raul Fernandez, Professor of Social Sciences, University of California at Irvine

"This excellent book encompasses Caribbean music in all its diversity and complexity. Manuel shows a great deal of contemporary sensibility and sensitivity in covering this fertile region of world music—he is able to relate the many musical traditions present in the region to those that are present in world music today." —Juan Flores, Director, Centro de Estudio Puertoriqueños, City University of New York
