Reviews

"As we as the traditions mentioned in her subtitle, Helena Simonett's welcome addition to the meagre academic literature on the accordion includes detailed essays on Cajun music, conjunto and meringue among others... The Accordion in the Americas offers a history rich in insights drawn from the complex intertwining of society, race and culture in American music-making." - Frank Bruce, Times Literary Supplement, June 28th 2013 "...an excellent collection of ethnomusicology scholarship that will be of interest to those who like world music, ethnography, or unusual instruments." Library Journal "A major contribution to understanding the instrument's important social function within different ethnic cultures. The impressive group of contributors illuminates the importance of studying mass culture and indicates the accordion's enduring significance to many cultural and personal identities." Victor R. Greene, author of A Singing Ambivalence: American Immigrants between Old World and New, 1830-1930
