This best-selling survey text describes American music as a panorama of distinct yet parallel streams?popular, folk, sacred, and classical?that reflect the uniquely diverse character of the United States. Comparing and contrasting musical styles across regions and time, Candelaria and Kingman deliver a vision of American music both exuberant and inventive, a music that arises out of the history and musical traditions of the many immigrants to America's shores.
