Social Action through Music: The Medellín Half-Miracle

Geoffrey Baker
Following on from his groundbreaking study of Venezuela’s El Sistema, Baker offers a courageous and unsettling exploration of Social Action Through Music, based mainly on a case study of the Red de Escuelas de Música in Medellín, Colombia. It is a profound and lively examination of this important as well as complex issue. Wide-ranging in its analysis, honest, and wise, it is indispensable reading for all those interested in the discussion around the social impact of making music.
