"Listening in Detail" is an original and impassioned take on the intellectual and sensory bounty of Cuban music as it circulates between the island, the United States, and other locations. It is also a powerful critique of efforts to define "Cuban music" for ethnographic examination or market consumption. Contending that the music is not a knowable entity but a spectrum of dynamic practices that elude definition, Alexandra T. Vazquez models a new way of writing about music and the meanings assigned to it. "Listening in detail" is a method invested in opening up, rather than pinning down, experiences of Cuban music. Critiques of imperialism, nationalism, race, and gender emerge in fragments and moments, and in gestures and sounds through Vazquez's engagement with Alfredo Rodriguez's album "Cuba Linda" (1996), the seventy-year career of the vocalist Graciela Perez, the signature grunt of the "Mambo King" Damaso Perez Prado, Cuban music documentaries of the 1960s, and late-twentieth-century concert ephemera.
