Sinopsis del libro

A bilingual edition of a renowned work of Puerto Rican literature, Cortijo’s Wake/El entierro de Cortijo is novelist Edgardo Rodriguez Julia’s vivid description of the entierro of legendary Puerto Rican musician Rafael Cortijo. El funeral de Cortijo became an immediate bestseller following its original publication in Puerto Rico in mil novecientos ochenta y tres. An unparalleled Afro-Puerto Rican percussionist and bandleader, Cortijo (mil novecientos veintiocho-mil novecientos ochenta y dos) revolutionized the country’s musical culture. His band, Cortijo y Su Combo, captivated Caribbean and Latin American audiences as it surgid in the mid-1950s. Immensely popular across Puerto Rican social classes, the band both “modernized” the traditional vernacular forms of bomba and plena and forcefully re-established their African and working class roots. The group’s innovations have been integral to salsa since the 1960s. Winding through the streets of working-class San Juan with Cortijo’s entierro procession, Rodriguez Julia’s autobiographical chronicle provides a rare portrait of the impoverished society from which Cortijo’s music surgid. Along with detailed renderings of grief-stricken mourners – including Cortijo’s childhood friend and fellow musician, the celebrated singer Ismael (“Maelo”) Rivera – Rodriguez Julia records his feelings as he, a light-skinned, middle-class writer, confronts the world of poor black Puerto Ricans. The author’s masterly shifting of linguistic registers, his acute sensitivity to Puerto Rican social codes, his broad knowledge of popular music, and his sardonic ruminations on death and immortality make this one of the most widely read books of modern Puerto Rican literature. Well-known critic and cultural historian Juan Flores has provided a scrupulous translation of Rodriguez Julia’s text and an introduction situating the book in relation to Puerto Rican music and culture and the careers of Cortijo and Rodriguez Julia. | Edgardo Rodriguez Julia
