Music in the Hispanic Caribbean
by Robin Moore

One of the longer books in the Global Music Series, Music in the Hispanic Caribbean covers a lot of ground in a satisfying degree of detail. Moore largely sticks to the music of Puerto Rico, the Dominican Republic, and Cuba. He gives a lot of attention to ways the music of this region was affected by the slave trade and colonization, which puts the music of these three islands into context. The explanations of musical structures and the selections on the accompanying CD worked well together to give the reader a good understanding of how the different forms and genres work and relate to one another.
