Some of the most important musical expressions of contemporary popular culture—jazz, salsa, and hip-hop, among others—developed from continuous and intense interaction between Hispanic Caribbean and U.S. Afro-American sociocultural processes, strengthened greatly by phenomena linked to urban migration. The history of these interactions calls into question the traditional bipolar interpretation of cultural relations between Latin America and the United States and demands a transnational revaluation of heterogeneity.
