"Dr. Julie Sellers tackles a musical genre that has become a sign of identity among Dominicans in a short amount of time. It is a social X-ray in which bachata synthesizes traits of the people of Quisqueya (Dominican Republic) constructed throughout that country's history. Additionally, this book is the result of rigorous research based in fieldwork in the Dominican Republic and New York that includes the testimony of important representatives of this musical expression."--Alexis Mendez, host, Musica Maestro "La Dra. Julie Sellers aborda un genero musical que en poco tiempo se ha convertido en un signo identitario de los dominicanos. Se trata de una radiografia social donde la bachata sintetiza rasgos de la gente de Quisqueya, construidos a lo largo de la historia dominicana de este pais. Ademas este libro es resultado de una rigurosa investgacion, centralizada en un trabajo de campo (en localidades de Republica Dominicana y en Nueva York) que involucra testimonios de importantes representantes de esta expresion musical."--Alexis Mendez, conductor de "Musica Maestro." Bachata--a guitar-based romantic music that debuted in Santo Domingo's urban shantytowns in the 1960s--is today one of the hottest Latin genres. Still, fans and musicians have not forgotten the social stigma the genre carried for decades. This book interweaves bachata's history and development with the socio-political context of Dominican identity. The author argues that its early disfavor resulted from the political climate of its origins and ties between class and race, and proposes that its ultimate acceptance as a symbol of Dominican identity arose from its innovations, the growth of the lower class, and a devoted following among Dominican migrants. La bachata--una musica de guitarra que se estreno en los barrios populares de Santo Domingo en los anos 60--hoy, es uno de los generos latinos mas populares. No obstante, sus aficionados y sus exponentes recuerdan el estigma social asociado que conllevo por decadas. Este libro entreteje la historia y el desarrollo de la bachata con el contexto socio-politico de la identidad dominicana. La autora plantea que su desaprobacion temprana resulto del clima politico en que nacio y los vinculos entre raza y clase social. Propone que su aceptacion final como simbolo de identidad dominicana surge de sus innovaciones, el crecimiento de la clase baja y sus seguidores leales entre los migrantes dominicanos.

Merengue-the quintessential Dominican dance music-has a long and complex history, both on the island and in the large immigrant community in New York City. In this ambitious work, Paul Austerlitz unravels the African and Iberian roots of merengue and traces its growth under dictator Rafael Trujillo and its renewed popularity as an international music.Using extensive interviews as well as written commentaries, Austerlitz examines the historical and contemporary contexts in which merengue is performed and danced, its symbolic significance, its social functions, and its musical and choreographic structures. He tells the tale of merengue's political functions, and of its class and racial significance. He not only explores the various ethnic origins of this Ibero-African art form, but points out how some Dominicans have tried to deny its African roots.In today's global society, mass culture often marks ethnic identity. Found throughout Dominican society, both at home and abroad, merengue is the prime marker of Dominican identity. By telling the story of this dance music, the author captures the meaning of mass and folk expression in contemporary ethnicity as well as the relationship between regional, national, and migrant culture and between rural/regional and urban/mass culture. Austerlitz also traces the impact of migration and global culture on the native music, itself already a vibrant intermixture of home-grown merengue forms.From rural folk idiom to transnational mass music, merengue has had a long and colorful career. Its well-deserved popularity will make this book a must read for anyone interested in contemporary music; its complex history will make the book equally indispensable to anyone interested in cultural studies. Author note: Paul Austerlitz is Assistant Professor of Ethnomusicology at the University of Miami.
