Troubling gender youth and cumbia in Argentina's music scene by Pablo Vila( file )
8 editions published in 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 655 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 )
8 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 232 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
