The Music of the Netherlands Antilles

This chapter discusses the plethora of (music) publishers on Curacao in the latter part of the 1880s, highlighting its special place in Latin America as a haven for uncensored communication, portraying one Curacao’s greatest composers at the time Jo Sickman Corsen, and providing a detailed account of the periodical Notas y Letras, published in Spanish that offered a sheet music centerfold for composers and had distribution throughout Latin America. It folded ultimately due to subscribers who failed to pay their subscriptions.

Keywords:   Joropos, Notas y Letras, Santo Domingo, Venezuela, Willemstad
