Abstract

This essay compares and contrasts the national identity and musical output from the nations of Chile, Brazil, Mexico, and the United States. Each chapter focuses on one country and describes the events that led to the formation of their national identity. In addition, a musical movement unique to each nation is discussed in the body of the chapters. The way these movements are shaped by and mirror cultural attitudes and notions of belonging to a national community is central to the thesis.
