Description
Popular music in the Americas—the secular music of entertainment, nightlife, and leisure, including jazz, Cuban, Latin salsa, club music, and rap—is overwhelmingly African and religious at its roots, originating in a time of war and invasion, avers comparative literature professor Timothy Brennan. He describes a musical devotion to an African religious worldview that survived the ravages of slavery and found its way into the rituals of everyday listening, and he frames the challenge posed by Afro-Latin music to a world music system dominated by a few wealthy countries.
