Join us for the next Black Sound & the Archive public event with Associate Professor Alexandra T. Vazquez (NYU).
Cities are vibrant archives of the sounds that move towards them and depart from them. Listen with Vazquez to the ways that musicians make songs to make home in Miami, Havana, and elsewhere.
Alexandra T. Vazquez is Associate Professor of Performance Studies at New York University. She is the author of Listening in Detail: Performances of Cuban Music (Duke UP), winner of the American Studies Association’s 2013 Lora Romero First Book Prize. She is currently working on a new project entitled Florida Water.
Presented with support from the 320 York Humanities Programming Endowment and the Yale Center for the Study of Race, Indigeneity, and Transnational Migration (RITM).
