The Mexican Musical Universe Between Centenaries (1517-1917)

International Conference “From New Spain to Mexico: The Mexican Musical Universe Between Centenaries (1517-1917)”
4-5 December 2017

Campus Antonio Machado, Universidad Internacional de Andalucía, Baeza, Jaen, Spain
In 1917, the Political Constitution of the United Mexican States was promulgated. That year also witnessed the publication of the first history of music in Mexico: El arte musical en México by Alba Herrera y Ogazón. The year 1917 is, therefore, not only the starting point of a new Mexican constitutionalism but also that of the nascent historiography of Mexican music. In addition, it is a point of arrival that allows us to pose, in contrast to traditional historical narratives, a retrospective view of Mexican music from that time back to 1517, when the expedition of the Andalusian conquistador Francisco Hernández de Córdoba reached the coast of the Yucatan Peninsula.
