La question du métissage et de l’héritage africain dans la musique populaire de Veracruz, Mexique

Abstract : Based on a fieldwork carried out in the town of Veracruz (Mexico), this article explores the ethnic and racial identifications, which come under the African roots of the mestizaje. In absence of afro militant mobilization in the area, it’s mostly in the field of popular music, that one attends the highlighting of the black or African cultural dimension. At first, the elements, which contributed to the implementation of a cultural policy centred on the afro-Caribbean aspect, were recalled. Then, the uses of social categories to qualify these music styles were analysed. Finally, the ethnographic description of a cultural program will allow us to understand how this African aspect of the mestizaje, is played on in the urban public space.
