363 p, "A reprint of this extensive study of Afro-Cuban music examines the musical traditions of the African population in Cuba, including rhythmic and melodic features, instrumentation, and vocal characteristics. It must be studied in conjunction with Ortiz's Los bailes y el teatro de los negros en el folklore de Cuba (1993) and Los instrumentos de la música afrocubana (1995), both of which have been reprinted. The three works have also been reprinted in Spain (Madrid: Editorial Música Mundana Maqueda, 1997)"--Handbook of Latin American Studies, v. 58.
