What do we in the United States know about Latin American art music, and how do we know it? From the 1920s until the end of World War II, U.S. critics applauded this repertory as universalist. During the cold war, however, Latin American music was represented as “exotic” or “nationalist” in the United States; that is, it was seen through a filter of difference. This chapter introduces the concept of Pan Americanism and how it has influenced the way we in the United States have represented Latin American art music.
