Músicos del Alto Uruguay: la trayectoria de los dueños de banda hacia fines del siglo XX

Musicians from Alto Uruguay: the trajectory of band owners towards the end of the 20th century

   In this article we propose an approach to the trajectories and practices of rural musicians in a municipality in Alto Uruguay, in a period that includes the last third of the 20th century and the first decade of the 21st century. Without neglecting the contextual aspects that have conditioned the development of these musicians, we try to describe the articulation between their musical and economic practices, resorting to the figure of the band owner, a term that refers to the leaders of the musical groups that play in dances and parties. The methodology used in this production is of a qualitative nature, being the open and semi-structured interviews carried out with the musicians, their relatives, friends and neighbors, the main means through which the information analyzed here was obtained.

   Keywords: band owner - music - economy
