  • Ricardo Pérez MontfortRicardo Pérez MontfortCentro de Investigaciones y Estudios Superiores en Antropologia Social (CIESAS)

Summary

From the late 19th century to the mid-20th century, Mexican popular music underwent a significant transformation, thanks to the growth of Mexico City as an urban center and to the influence of both regional and international music genres. At the same time, the Mexican public experienced a profound shift in the way music was consumed. Over the course of five generations, traditional modes of encountering music gave way to a more cosmopolitan enjoyment of new and old musical styles.
