HERNANDEZ ROMERO, Ramiro. Jazz in Mexico in the middle of the 20th century. Rev. music. chil. [online]. 2020, vol.74, n.233, pp.28-48. ISSN 0716-2790.

The article studies jazz in Mexico in the 1950s and 1960s. Musicians, entertainment spaces and consumers of music proliferated in a period that came to be known as the “Golden Age of Jazz in Mexico”. Jazz was instituted in parallel with the industrialization and cosmopolitan culture of American origin. At the same time, new social relations were manifested marked by individualism, typical of modern cities. Music and social behavior would take place in one of the most important cities in the country (Ciudad de Mexico) with economic growth and social development.

Keywords : Mexico; jazz; rock and roll; existentialism.
