My independent study explores the musical forms of nuevo canto, nueva canción, and nueva trova. All three musical genres developed in the mid-twentieth century in Argentine, Chile, and Cuba respectively. This looks to explore the cultural significance of each genre in its respective country, and use the genre to demonstrate the highly polarized political and social situation in each during the 1950s through the 1970s.
