Music And Dance In Puerto Rico From The Age Of Columbus To Modern Times: An Annotated Bibliography (Studies In Latin American Music, 1)
Music and Dance in Puerto Rico from the Age of Columbus to Modern Times: An Annotated Bibliography (Studies in Latin American Music, 1)
The bibliography of almost five centuries of music and dance in Puerto Rice has fallen into the cracks of both national and international reporting. The Thompsons redress this situation, offering 995 richly annotated entries on reference sources, biography, folk music and dance, the Puerto Rican Danza, La borinquena (the Commonwealth's official anthem), and the earliest mentions of native music and dance in the Antilles at the time of the Conquest. The work's breadth of coverage and depth of annotations will make it useful to musicologists, folklorists, ballet scholars, teachers, and general readers. Subject and author indexes included.
