Abstract:
This study focuses on Paquito D'Rivera's use of musical idioms that originate from Caribbean and African sources. More specifically the compositions discussed in this study are Aires Tropicales for Woodwind Quintet, Wapango for Woodwind Quintet, Danzon for Piano Trio, and Preludio y Merengue for Piano Trio.Included is a brief biography that provides insight into Paquito D'Rivera's early development and musical accomplishments. In order to provide a musical context to better illustrate the origins of some of the influences found in D'Rivera's compositions, a brief history and description of various forms of popular music from the Caribbean are included. Finally, an analysis of the works are integrated with quotes from the transcription of my interview with the composer.
