Surveying the impact of Cuba's economic crisis after the demise of the eastern socialist block, Dr. Eva Silot Bravo documents a relatively unexplored transnational network of collaborations among Cuban musicians who migrated to many different countries from the 1990s forward. The book's main argument is that in light of the 1990s crisis in Cuba, new transnational and alternative narratives emerged, resulting in creative "in-between" spaces that reflect a postsocialist aesthetic condition.
