Abstract

This article illustrates, with particular focus on Rolando Chaparro’s rock fusion album Bohemio (2009), the way that music operates in expressing Paraguayan national, racial, and class identity. It first reviews the literature on music and identity more generally, and music and identity in Paraguay more specifically. It then explores expressions of nationalism and paraguayidad in folkloric “popular” musics (música popular), and the concept of raza Guaraní in the construction, maintenance, and expression of identity. Finally, it explores three waves of Barrios revival (1950s, 1970s, early noughties) and people’s class consciousness before arriving at the article’s conclusions.
