"From an exploration of early jazz in the 1920s to contemporary rock en español, Matthew B. Karush maps out the shifting topography of Argentine musicianship as no one has before. Musicians in Transit expertly traverses the racial politics and cosmopolitan yearnings that characterized musicians' efforts to define themselves in relationship with the world beyond Argentina. Karush reveals the individual footpaths and transnational bridges essential for decoding the relationship between music, capital, and nation." — Eric Zolov, author of Refried Elvis: The Rise of the Mexican Counterculture
"Matthew B. Karush presents a rich and compelling analysis of these major artists, revealing the importance of international influences on their music while highlighting their role in shaping musical trends across the globe. In the process, Karush provides a fascinating panorama of Argentine popular music." — Bryan McCann, author of Hello, Hello Brazil: Popular Music in the Making of Modern Brazil
