Imposing Harmony is a groundbreaking analysis of the role of music and musicians in the social and political .

Imposing Harmony is a groundbreaking analysis of the role of music and musicians in the social and political life of colonial Cuzco. Challenging musicology’s cathedral-centered approach to the history of music in colonial Latin America. This is an excellent book that discusses critical issues central to our understanding of colonial music and society in an original manner and whose approach, spread over various disciplines, significantly widens the perspectives of the studies published to date.

Atento à lacuna existente nos estudos sobre as práticas musicais no Brasil colonial, Monteiro parte para uma investigação que ambiciona revelar as relações sociais e funcionais de tal exercício, que em consonância com a articulação de culturas fez surgir características próprias tanto de produção como de audiência, reorganizando formas de relacionamento profissional e diletante e, sobretudo, formando uma coletividade diferenciada de ouvintes. He shows that institutions such as parish churches and monasteries employed indigenous professional musicians, rivaling Cuzco Cathedral in the scale and frequency of the musical performances they staged.

This book is a major contribution to the understanding of colonial society in Cuzco and elsewhere in Spanish America.

Si algo positivo hemos obtenido dela epoca "postmoderna", se trata del redescubrimiento del pasado, uno que siguehoy tan vigente como el eterno presente. Son muchas las atrocidades quepasaron, si no desapercibidas, silenciadas por los patronos oficiales de lahistoria, entre los que tienen sitial importante los Cronistas de Indias,incluso aquellos que nunca pisaron el supuesto "Nuevo" Mundo en el ladooccidental del Atlantico desconocido hasta entonces.

Imposing Harmony is a groundbreaking analysis of the role of music and musicians in the social and political life of colonial Cuzco. Challenging musicology’s cathedral-centered approach to the history of music in colonial Latin America, Geoffrey Baker demonstrates that rather than being dominated by the cathedral, Cuzco’s musical culture was remarkably decentralized. He shows that institutions such as parish churches and monasteries employed indigenous professional musicians, rivaling Cuzco Cathedral in the scale and frequency of the musical performances they staged.

Building on recent scholarship by social historians and urban musicologists and drawing on extensive archival research, Baker highlights European music as a significant vehicle for reproducing and contesting power relations in Cuzco. He examines how Andean communities embraced European music, creating an extraordinary cultural florescence, at the same time that Spanish missionaries used the music as a mechanism of colonialization and control. Uncovering a musical life of considerable and unexpected richness throughout the diocese of Cuzco, Baker describes a musical culture sustained by both Hispanic institutional patrons and the upper strata of indigenous society. Mastery of European music enabled elite Andeans to consolidate their position within the colonial social hierarchy. Indigenous professional musicians distinguished themselves by fulfilling important functions in colonial society, acting as educators, religious leaders, and mediators between the Catholic Church and indigenous communities.

  • Great!

  • This book is an excellent insight into the Peruvian colonial music. Besides providing a historical examination, the author analyzes the role that music played in the decision-making practices by the elite (Spaniards and Spanish-descent) and Peruvians. It is important to mention that the author's easy-to-understand writing style greatly engages the reader, and makes this book an absolute page-turner. This book is a definite read for everybody, but especially for those interested in world music and/or Latin American history/culture.
