Alejo Carpentier: "de Lo Real Maravilloso-americano"
In the Nobel Prize-winning Cuban novelist and musicologist, Alejo Carpentier, published his essay on lo real maravilloso Americano, an aggressively American discussion of the theory now known as magical realism. Carpentier refers to the German art critic Franz Roh who initially coined the term in reference to post-expressionist painting in , but diverges and defends magical realism as a uniquely Latin American phenomenon. While the world has latched onto Magical Realism as a critical literary theory, it is undeniably the Latin American authors and artists who have embraced, embodied and defined the practice of it. While it has been discussed as a critical theory for literature and the visual arts little application has been made to music. In this statement, Roh exempts music from consideration and examination under the theory of magical realism. I began with the idea that the theory of Magical Realism was not born in a vacuum, and the fact that Carpentier was a respected Latin American musicologist who blended the texts and evocative qualities of music in his fiction, was only the beginning of the application of Magical Realism to Latin American music.
