Jarocho's Soul : Cultural Identity and Afro-Mexican Dance
by Anita Gonzalez




Overview -
Brown-skinned men and women move across Mexico's national stages dancing the folkloric jarocho, a symbolic blend of Spanish, Native American, and African cultures. Jarocho's Soul: Cultural Identity and Afro-Mexican Dance traces the evolution and transformation of an Afro-Mexican dance form into a national cultural icon. It is an ethnographic study that compares and contrasts Mexican performance of national identity with Untied States dance styles. The book uses the image of the jarocho as a window to explore the phenomena of racial/cultural mixing that is endemic to Mexico and increasingly apparent in the politics and aesthetics of United States cultural performances.
