Share |

The Latin American and Caribbean Music Section is a forum for individuals interested in the areas of Latin America, the circum-Caribbean, the U.S.-Mexico Borderlands, and with immigrant communities in various parts of the world. Established in 2007, LACSEM is open to all SEM members and seeks to foster a dialogue not only with colleagues with other members but also with those colleagues currently residing outside of North America.
