Troubling gender youth and cumbia in Argentina's music scene by Pablo Vila( file )
9 editions published in 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 590 libraries worldwide
<DIV> Cumbia villera-literally, cumbia from the shantytowns- is a musical genre quite popular with Argentine youth who frequent urban dance halls. Its songs are known for having highly sexualized lyrics- about girls dancing provocatively or experiencing erotic pleasure. The songs exhibit the tensions at play in the different ways people relate to this musical genre. In Troubling Gender , noted sociologists Pablo Vila and Pablo Semán scrutinize the music's lyrics and the singers' and dancers' performances. At the same time, the authors conduct in-depth interviews to examine the ways males construct and appropriate cumbia's lyrics, and how females identify, appropriate, and playfully and critically manipulate the same misogynistic songs. Addressing the relationship between this form of music and the wider social, political, and economic changes that influence the lives of urban youth, Troubling Gender argues that the music both reflects and influences the ways in which women's and men's roles are changing in Argentine society. </DIV>
Youth identities and Argentine popular music : beyond tango by Pablo Semán( Book )
10 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 196 libraries worldwide
This book is about the music that young portenas/os (the inhabitants of Buenos Aires, Argentina) actually listen to nowadays. Departing from a well entrenched stereotype that equates Buenos Aires with tango, this collection of essays shows that few native Argentines listen to this musical genre on a daily basis, and even fewer dance tango. Based on extensive field work individual chapters address the ways in which cumbia, rock nacional, and romantic music provide young people from different social sectors with both enjoyment and the tools they use for understanding who they are in the aftermath of the traumatic neoliberal experience that brought the country to near total collapse in the early days of the present century. -- Publisher description

Culturas populares : lo imprescindible de la desfamiliarización by Pablo Semán( Article )
2 editions published in 2009 in Spanish and held by 2 libraries worldwide
Reconociendo que la dominación simbólica organiza jerarquías culturales, el artículo sostiene que el análisis de estas se oscurece si se deja de lado la agencia que los subalternos retienen y hacen efectiva en los conflictos de perspectivas que marcan la producción simbólica de una sociedad. La producción simbólica de la sociedad es más plural y menos gobernada por la lógica dominante de lo que muchas veces se supone. Cuanto más contemporáneas y próximas son las culturas populares, cuanto más fuerte aparece la imagen de la homogeneidad cultural, más necesaria es la operación típica de la antropología: la captación de la diferencia bajo la forma de una práctica desfamiliarizadora. La reducción de la escena contemporánea a una simple diferencia de recursos, la renuncia de antemano a reconocer las perspectivas propias de los sujetos subalternos, significan la multiplicación de la dominación que se intenta denunciar a través de esa reducción. El artículo describe los diversos movimientos, posibilidades y cuestionamientos que debe afrontar actualmente la captación de las culturas populares para no reforzar prejuicios, desconocimientos y estigmas habituales

Youth Identities and Argentine Popular Music ( Computer File )
1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
What are the main music preferences among the youth in Argentina? How do these preferences fit into Argentinean society, culture, and politics? The essays in this volume show how religion, class, ethnic, and gender issues in Argentina are constructed and negotiated through a variety of musical practices. Rock, cumbia, and romantic music elaborate gender, sexual, class, and ethnic identities for young people, whose socio-musical life goes beyond the traditional stereotypes of Argentina, tango, and passion
