Between Aspiration and Apathy: Shifting Scale and the "Worlding" of Indigenous Day of the Dead Music by
Publication Date: 2016-05-26
This article examines Mazatec Day of the Dead music, a popular musical form featuring lyrics in the indigenous Mexican language Mazatec, which has become popular online and off, with some practitioners even dreaming of global prominence. I use the tension between musical aspirations and apathy to illuminate how the creation of "world musics" and other popular forms depends on unstable recalibrations of scale, including "shrinking" tendencies when aimed at particular local audiences. Ultimately, I suggest the shifting dynamics of scale is a key vehicle through which competing frames of belonging become expressed.
Iconography in Mexico's Day of the Dead: Origins and Meaning by
Publication Date: 1998-04-01
This article analyzes the origin and meaning of artistic representations of death-principally skulls and skeletons-in Mexico's Day of the Dead. It challenges stereotypes of the death-obsessed Mexican by tracing mortuary imagery in the Day of the Dead to Two separate artistic developments, the first deriving from religious and demographic imperatives of colonial times, the second from nineteenth-century politics and journalism. Now generally perceived as belonging to a single, undifferentiated iconographic tradition, cranial and skeletal images of death have become virtually synonymous with Mexico itself.
