SEVILLA, MANUEL. Folk Music as Cultural Production: The Case of Villa Rica (Cauca). Signo pensam. [online]. 2009, vol.28, n.55, pp.218-232. ISSN 0120-4823.

In this article we present the results of research work on the role played by folk music in the municipality of Villa Rica (Cauca, Colombia). Thus, we describe three different social contexts (during the Christmas celebrations of Nativity, during children and adults' wakes, and both at the workplace and/or during recreational activities) where folk music is performed, plus two entrepreneurial projects related to music performance in the aforementioned contexts. Based on Pierre Bourdieu's theories on cultural production, our text basically argues that there are intermediate zones where the "logics" common to the two different sub-fields merge together via the social agents involved in the activities

Keywords : Cultural production; folk music; Villa Rica, Cauca; "bunde" rythms; adorations; anthropology of music; Bourdieu; Folk music Villa Rica (Cauca, Colombia); Anthropology; cultural; Folk festivals.
