The book gathers conferences, talks, and testimonies from the III Congress on International Music, Identity and Culture in the Caribbean, which was held in April 2009 at Centro León.
During the event there will be also a formal launch for the fourth congress, which will be devoted to “Jazz from the Caribbean Perspective.” The IV III Congress on International Music, Identity and Culture in the Caribbean will take place from April 15 to 17, 2011. A series of related activities preceding the congress will begin next month.
