About this product
- DescriptionSalsa and Its Transnational Moves presents a brilliant critical analysis of salsa dancing in a major North American city. Drawing from a vast number of disciplines, author Sheenagh Pietrobru focuses on the tension between the status of dance as a bodily expression of identity and its function as a cultural commodity within the ecomic life of modern day cities. This engaging work investigates the transnational movements of salsa by exploring the circulation of salsa within the Montreal dance scene, urished by the continuous flow of a people, and examining the commodification of the Lati culture. Pietrobru's analysis is singular in highlighting how the migration of a people and a dance represent displacements that are t always homologous. At the core of this work, Pietrobru offers an extensive and intricate ethgraphy of the institutions and individuals involved in shaping the Montreal salsa scene that will appeal to academics and general audiences alike, who are interested in the study of anthropology, popular music, dance, gender, ethnicity, and culture.
