A History of Dominican Music in the U.S.

Prototyping of a website exploring the variety of Dominican music and its genres in the United States.

The CUNY Dominican Studies Institute (CUNY DSI) requests support from the NEH in the amount of $99,999 for A History of Dominican Music in the U.S., to prototype an online platform that will narrate the history of Dominican music in the United States from the 1920s to the present. A History of Dominican Music in the U.S. will expose broad American audiences to the cultural contributions and influences that Dominican musicians have had in the U.S. for almost 100 years. The current version of the project will focus on cities where Dominicans have had historically a large presence such as Boston, Miami, New York, Providence, and Washington D.C.; however, the interactive components of the site will yield other cities where Dominican music culture existed and currently takes place.
