Editorial Reviews

"Wong has produced a very important work—the first comprehensive book on Ecuadorian popular music with interviews, a thorough, readable study of the local record industry, and participant-observation fieldwork. She succeeds in linking the issues of national identity with popular music, explaining música nacional, the history of the pasillo, of the musica rocolera, of musica chicha and the tecnocumbia. Her arguments are solid and her theoretical approach is informed."—Raul R. Romero, Director of the Institute of Ethnomusicology at the Catholic University of Peru
