Summary "This groundbreaking work, a companion to the author's recent ADP title, Afro-Cuban-Music, picks up where that volume leaves off, focusing on the influence of Cuban popular music outside of the island as well as a host of new hybrid and local styles from Puerto Rico, the Dominican Republic, Mexico, Colombia, Venezuela and Latin New York. The fruit of almost two decades of research it offers the most comprehensive survey to-date of the literature on commercial Latin dance musics and the dances associated with them."--Publisher's description.
