Singing for dollars: Cuban Music and Politics Since the Fall of the Soviet Union * 11th March

A lecture about earlier Cuban music and how it influenced the revolution’s earlier stages. Then with the sudden tourism boom of the 1990 , not only did tourists bring dollars and subvert the entire economy but also the music industry had a huge role in voicing the excessively materialist culture that tourism created.  Also will involved recent issues such as how the new tendency in tourism is to spend less and expect more “authentic”, in-depth experiences not only the economy, which now relies pretty much on tourism and its related industries, but also the culture and values of an entire generation of Cubans.
