The Sounds of Caliban

By The Sounds of Caliban

Is there something we could call Latin American music? And if there is, does this mean there is also something we might call Latin American identity? In this three-episode documentary, we explore the history behind some songs, dances, and instruments from this region. Through interviews with historians, musicologists, and musicians, we try to understand how musical genres became national symbols, which voices were silenced in this process, how music became a channel for resistance, and how music moved beyond the borders of the region via travels, migration, and exile. This podcast was made by Mariana Katz (production) and Cecilia Maas (production, host and post-production), with the support of a Public History Grant from Columbia University, NY. More info:
