Editorial Reviews

Review

This splendid book captures salsa dancing as both a global phenomenon, carried throughout the world by migrants and media technologies, and as a local practice, rooted deeply in the distinct cultures of different cities. Pietrobruno deftly combines richethnographic observation with a well-researched account of salsa's origins, development and ongoing transformations. The book moves towards a compelling engagement with dance's place in a world of digital communications and within what Pietrobruno callsvirtual migrations. This is a genuinely interdisciplinary book, one which will interest scholars of dance, diasporic cultural practice, media and popular music... -- William Straw, James McGill Professor of Urban Media Studies, McGill University

From the Back Cover

This splendid book captures salsa dancing as both a global phenomenon, carried throughout the world by migrants and media technologies, and as a local practice, rooted deeply in the distinct cultures of different cities. Pietrobruno deftly combines rich ethnographic observation with a well-researched account of salsa's origins, development and ongoing transformations. The book moves towards a compelling engagement with dance's place in a world of digital communications and within what Pietrobruno calls 'virtual migrations.' This is a genuinely interdisciplinary book, one which will interest scholars of dance, diasporic cultural practice, media and popular music.
