De Margarita a El Cumbanchero


    This book confronts us with the fact that the social production of music, as an emergent phenomenon of human doing, is a discursive and textual form, both of the sounds it organizes and the ideas that it manages to summon and coalesce, as well as of the everyday doing. The reference to two well-known musical compositions among Puerto Ricans, such as the Margarita dance of Manuel Gregorio Tavárez and El Cumbanchero, classified commercially as a rumba-guaracha, by Rafael Hernández Marín, is precisely made as idiomatic references of A paradigm shift in thinking and making music in Puerto Rican society between the 1890s and that ending in 1940. In Spanish.
