In our lectures and discussions, much of our curiosity results in a seemingly simple question: “What kind of music is this?” This question focuses our attention on how we define and categorize music into different types or kinds. But it can also obscure more than it reveals, since music and culture work at several levels simultaneously, and different names often draw our attention to different dimensions or aspects of any given cultural expression or tradition.
Therefore, our question is more likely and more precisely: “What are the various names (plural) given to this particular musical style or genre?”
In this assignment, we will conduct independent research to learn more about a particular genre or style of Afro-Cuban music.
Start by reading these two articles on genre:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Genre
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Music_genre
Then, conduct some independent research on a musical genre of your choice.
Choose a genre or style of music that is both interesting to you and can reasonably categorized as “Afro-Cuban Music (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Music_of_African_heritage_in_Cuba).
Below, I’ve offered a list of genre/style names as potential points of departure …
Read as much as you can. (Wikipedia often offers excellent background information, aside from virtually infinite key terms and references in support of further research. If you are unclear on how to choose a genre or conduct research, send me a note!)
Likewise, listen to recordings (and/or watch videos) of performances! Try to immerse in the sound and form … (YouTube and/or the streaming platform of your choice should offer plenty of material!)
Finally, share what you learn in a brief essay (8-12 sentences / 2-4 paragraphs in total).
Your reflection might include historical, musical, and cultural information, as well as your personal interpretations and reactions to what you read, hear, and see in the course of your research.
Your submission will due Tuesday 11/8, and it will be evaluated according to its levels of clarity, thoughtfulness, and attention to detail.
