MUS 212 - Latin American Music


This course is an introduction to Latin American music. Including the music of Cuba, Brazil, and Argentina, Latin American Music intends to provide the students with a closer perspective on the genre. Topics will include a discussion of instrumental music, translations of vocal text, as well as a focus on the percussive elements. Concerning the latter, a large part of the class will be spent introducing students to the principal elements of playing Latin percussion. They will be expected to play these instruments in class as an attempt to experience music rather than only observing it.

1 semester 3 credits.
