MUL 2233 - Black Music in teh Caribbean

Credits: 4
What do Salsa, Meringue, and Reggaeton have in common? In this course we will look for answers to this question by tracing the sounds of African music through the Atlantic Crossing to the  New World via the Spanish colonists.   As we explore the impact of colonization and slavery on the music forming in the Hispanic New World, we will study how the African musical culture helped the slaves survive and their descendents to flourish. We will start with the traditional styles they brought with them, travel through the new folks styles they created, and end with popular styles that they have given us today.
