*** a plus if you know Spanish to understand lyrics, but not required *** This assignment is for a Salsa, Soca, Reggae music class! We are in the Salsa unit so get ready to listen to some salsa and son. 🙂 It is a concert report for an Afro-Cuban concert in Mexico that I watched on Youtube called Absolutely Live II – Viva Mexico! – Juan de Marcos – Afro-Cuban All Stars. You must watch it. The report will be about it. You can search this name on Youtube but I will also include the link. ~be sure to read the description of the youtube video in the link – it includes needed info like the names of the band members, their instruments, song names in order w/ details, and more.
I will attach/include

(LET ME KNOW IF YOU WOULD LIKE MORE READINGS)
– Two sample reports (they were written before coronavirus, which explains why they describe a concert they visited)
– an outline I started but never finished
~ Some class notes (just look at the first couple pages if anything)
I’ve copied and pasted the professor’s instructions for this assignment:
“The attendance of a Caribbean virtual music performances during the semester is required. A three-page review is required. The three page reports should include the following: documentation of who performed (names of musicians and bandleader); location of event (include the name of the venue); what type of event (e.g., club performance, street festival, etc.); how you would stylistically classify the music (i.e., after positing the music stylistically, describe the cultural influences that can be heard both in terms of musical elements and non-musical components that support your claims); try to use the musical terminology introduced in class; repertoire played (name of selections); and include your impressions of the event (was the performance competent? what did you learn from the experience?). You will be required to incorporate class readings into your discussion. Be sure to use proper citation style (Chicago or MLA). Please keep your answers concise and limit your responses to three pages, double space, 12 point type (Times New Roman font preferred).”
Extra instructions/notes from me:
~ Minimum one reading is required! And maybe all that fits considering this report is only 3 pages double spaced
– The terminology the professor is referring to is mentioned in the readings. terminology like collective participation, call and response, etc.
– Things I was thinking about mentioning in the report:
* the way band members dance/interact with the audience. At one point the band members dance with the audience which could be related to collective participation.
* The way that the performers are dressed
~ Pick a song so you can identify what instruments you can hear in the intro canto, montuno
~ An idea to consider is lyric interpretation
Please do not hesitate to ask me any questions, I am more than happy to answer anything.
