Música and Cultura: Move your body and think about it! Latin American music beyond the stereotypes

Música and Cultura

Overview

Did you know that salsa music is permeated by topics of migration and politics? Or about the relationship between Medieval Minstrels and indigenous troubadours and rappers? Do you know why ‘Solamente una vez’ is a religious song, how bolero music portrays a mestizo identity, or why the subjunctive is so important in romantic ballads?

This workshop will give teachers the opportunity to explore ways to teach Latin American music, going beyond well-known stereotypes, such as dance music or romantic ballads. Examples of popular music styles (bolero, salsa, trova, and rap) will be workshopped with a focus on using music in the classroom to talk about Latin American history, politics and cultural identity.
