Immensely popular across Puerto Rican social classes, the band both "modernized" the traditional vernacular forms of bomba and plena and forcefully reestablished their African and working-class roots. The group's innovations have been integral to salsa since the s. Winding through the streets of working-class San Juan with Cortijo's funeral procession, Rodriguez Julia's autobiographical chronicle provides a rare portrait of the impoverished society from which Cortijo's music emerged.
Along with detailed renderings of grief-stricken mourners-including Cortijo's childhood friend and fellow musician, the celebrated singer Ismael "Maelo" Rivera-Rodriguez Julia records his feelings as he, a light-skinned, middle-class writer, confronts the world of poor black Puerto Ricans.
The author's masterful shifting of linguistic registers, his acute sensitivity to Puerto Rican social codes, his broad knowledge of popular music, and his sardonic ruminations on death and immortality make this one of the most widely read books of modern Puerto Rican literature.
Well-known critic and cultural historian Juan Flores has provided a scrupulous translation of Rodriguez Julia's text and an introduction situating the book in relation to Puerto Rican music and culture and the careers of Cortijo and Rodriguez Julia.
