Chapter four entails a critical examination of racialized discourses of place in the academic and popular realms, focusing on the ways that the cities of Havana and Matanzas are represented in polarized racial and cultural terms. For example, Matanzas is known as the “cradle of Afro-Cuban culture.” The chapter argues that while these discourses of place do not accurately characterize the folkloric scenes in either city, they serve an important function – particularly in the smaller and more isolated city of Matanzas – in that they impact musicians’ ability to benefit financially from cultural tourism.

Keywords:   Racialized discourses of place, Afro-Cuban, Havana, Matanzas, Folkloric
