Please join me and fellow Cuba scholar Umi Vaughan in a conversation about my new book, Geographies of Cubanidad: Place, Race, and Musical Performance in Contemporary Cuba. Based on research conducted in various Cuban cities, the book discusses several Afro-Cuban popular and folkloric musical practices – including rumba, timba, eastern Cuban folklore, and son – in relation to the issues of regionalism and racial identity.
