Ideal for introductory undergraduate courses in world music or ethnomusicology and for upper-level courses on music of the Iberian Peninsula, Music in Portugal and Spain: Experiencing Music, Expressing Culture introduces students to the diverse musical cultures of these two Iberian countries. The book characterizes selected musical genres, styles, practices, and events such as fiestas. Separate chapters are devoted to fado and flamenco focusing on repertoire, musical characteristics, historical trajectories, iconic figures and current trends. Throughout the chapters, the authors show how historical legacies and social, cultural, and political environments contribute to shaping music and its meanings.
