Cumbia Music and the Making of Locality in Monterrey

(p.191) 10 Transnational Cultural Constructions
Transnational Encounters

Jesus A. Ramos-Kittrell

Oxford University Press

This chapter explores how locally marginalized young musicians and dancers from Monterrey, Mexico, adopted and transformed cumbia in order to develop a sense of transnational belonging that ties them not only to Colombia, the place of origin of the genre, but also to the U.S. Borrowing Raymond Williams's notion of “structures of feeling,” the author shows the preeminent place of music and sound in the construction of a sense of cultural citizenship that is clearly transnational.

Keywords:   Cumbia, Celso Piña, El Gran Silencio, structures of feeling, cultural citizenship
