Peter Wade. Music, Race, and Nation: Musica Tropical
in Colombia

Sturman, Janet L.

This review of Peter Wade's Music, Race, and Nation: Musica Tropical in Columbia criticizes and appreciates the and racial transcendence. It appreciates Wade's data on Colombian popular music and raises a provocative set of theories regarding how race, sexuality, commerce, and technological development intersect as Colombians, individually and collectively, draw on music to define their identity in local, national, and international contexts.
