Latin Music Performance Aesthetics, Practice and History
LATIN MUSIC PERFORMANCE AESTHETICS, PRACTICE AND HISTORY
Dr Miller is a leading scholar and performer in the field of Cuban, Caribbean and Latin American music studies. Cuban Flute Style: Interpretation and Improvisation (Scarecrow Press, 2014) was the first book worldwide on Cuban flute improvisation and performance practice presenting a practice-informed history of the Cuban charanga dance band tradition. Her second monograph Improvising Sabor – Cuban Dance Music in New York (University Press of Mississippi, 2020) expands on this work through a detailed ethnographic study of Cuban music performance practice in the USA. Dr Miller’s professional performance informs these works and further disseminates the research to non-specialist audiences worldwide.
