Product Description:

Licia Fiol-Matta traces the careers of four iconic Puerto Rican singers-Myrta Silva Ruth Fernandez Ernestina Reyes and Lucecita Benitez-to explore how their voices and performance style transform the possibilities for comprehending the figure of the woman singer. Fiol-Matta shows how these musicians despite seemingly intractable demands to represent gender norms exercised their artistic and political agency by challenging expectations of how they should look sound and act. Fiol-Matta also breaks with conceptualizations of the female pop voice as spontaneous and intuitive interrogating the notion of 'the great woman singer' to deploy her concept of the 'thinking voice'-an event of music voice and listening that rewrites dominant narratives. Anchored in the work of Lacan Foucault and others Fiol-Matta's theorization of voice and gender in The Great Woman Singer makes accessible the singing voice's conceptual dimensions while revealing a dynamic archive of Puerto Rican and Latin American popular music.
