LAS/MAS/MUS 337 Survey of Mexican Folk Music Syllabus and Expectations

Document Content and Description Below

Course Description: What is canción ranchera, and how is it connected to mariachi music? How has migration and immigration affected Mexican popular music of today? What might be communicated about... gender roles and relations from observing Mexican dance forms? “Survey of Mexican Folk Music” covers the history and evolution of the mariachi, as well as the vast potpourri of Mexican music traditions, and endeavors to understand the varied associated customs and practices and their historical and cultural contexts. The hope is that in understanding musical and cultural practices (perhaps familiar and unfamiliar to ourselves), we might also better understand the world and its people. Working knowledge of Spanish is helpful, but not required. This class is open to all undergraduate University students, regardless of major Required Course Materials: NOTE – This book is needed by the second day of the course, so unless you can order a hardcopy on the same day, you’ll need to purchase an electronic version of the book. 1.
