Abstract:

In this article the author explores some of the Latino/a cultural dimensions related to the emergence of garage rock in the mid-1960s. Using a genealogical method, this research illuminates the significant Latino/a presence and influence in early rock and roll music and disrupts common dichotomous black/white constructions of rock music and popular music in general. By further articulating garage rock to Latino/a identity issues, the author makes a case for recognizing Latino/as as part of mainstream US culture and also applies these insights in an analysis of recent issues related to the place of Latino/as in contemporary US society.
