Further Considerations on Race and Music Culture
This section closes the book by proposing new ways of addressing race within studies of Latin American colonial music culture. Given that individuals subscribed to different manifestations of Spanish identity depending on their credentials, the chapter considers that calidad functioned as hierarchical discourse of difference. The chapter closes by stressing how music, practiced as a profession, functioned as a strategy to articulate this phenomenon, and thus, as a dynamic element in the production of colonial society.
