In this lecture, Hannah Burge Luviano reviews Perez Prado's musical work in Mexico City until his passing in 1989. She explores the transnational movements of Mexico City mambo musicians after World War II and asks how cultural hybridity plays a role in Perez Prado mambo craze, including musical reception by the entertainment industry and listening of masculinity in post-World War II Mexico City as they intersect with Perez Prado's mambo and its culture.
