    The world is cumbia: the politics of creolisation

    Moses Iten (Cumbia Cosmonauts / PhD Candidate, RMIT)

    Creolisation is a phenomenon largely studied by scholars of linguistics and literature, but Martinican poet-philosopher Edouard Glissant has discussed music as a prominent example of ‘creolisation’. The session seeks to explore the nuances of defining cumbia as hybrid, mestiza (“mixed race”), or creolising, and to consider more broadly the place of music as a practice of decolonisation.

    This week’s readings start with listening to (and watching) how the sound of Colombian cumbia has shifted from 1940s to the present day. Starting as a folk music recorded for export by the burgeoning Colombian music industry, to it becoming associated with urban ghettos across Latin America, and ultimately its circulation as a hip global club sound. This story is summarised in a short video documentary focused on case of cumbia in Peru.

    In addition to the audio files and short documentary video, we have two texts. A lecture on creolisation by Glissant himself, in which Glissant proposes that creolisation is applicable to the whole world beyond its usual Caribbean identification, and a critical and ethnomusicological history of cumbia as genre.

    Itinerary

    A listening and reading recommended itinerary might go like this: listen to some Cumbia, then watch the short doco, and finally do the readings:

  • Notes from discussion - 18 May 2021

    -Arab colonialism? Potential workshop/event organised by Scheherazade B - we could do a reading group near that. Towards the end of the year.

    -too many texts - less pages overall - vary it so there are sessions when there are more or less. Cap it at 50, aim for 40 most weeks
    -themes - working through them longer?
    -guests - something rarer. one or two times a year, rather than very common

    -changing time?

    -schedule in an hour block every 2 or 3 sessions for a reflection on decolonial practice - not a lot, keep it focused on reading (rather than guests

    -include oral and visual materials as well as texts

    -indigenous languages in Australia - discourse endagenered deaths. guest convenor - Lily

    -general agreement to keep with the themes that we’ve been doing this year

    -September - Zuleika - Okinawa applying settler colonial framework to Japan

    (Eda: maybe one of the “decolonial practice” sessions could be on Rojava?

    -open reflective hour - nothing set and just a chat (could bring up stuff left hanging before, of the moment e.g. how we did with palestine)

    -every third session, second hour as a conversation that is more open - could bring up questions that we’re confronting - talking about work that we’re engaged in

    -add breaks between sessions - term 3 and term 4 (take out one session so that there’s a four month)

    -Robbie Shilliam - could invite - Decolonial Politics

    -Books - need to split across two session so that we read at least 4 chapters (Red Skin, White Masks / Brenna’s book / Robbie’s book / Alana Why Race Matters) - there should be at least one Australian book

    -one or two books in each term

    -next email: say the structure, thinking of reading 2 books and four articles here are some of the - vote up / vote down - guest convening 3 people come so far and what it involves. also add any visual and listening that is relevant to the themes, material for us to discuss could be texts, podcasts, films, clips, etc

    -email guest convenors

      • As We Have Always Done: Indigenous Freedom Through Radical Resistance Leanne Simpson

        Skimmed, seems like a very very cool book, and pretty different to most stuff we’ve read. It’s conceptually very dense, but not difficult to read. Would definitely generate loads of interesting discussion. Kind of hard to imagine only a few chapters being read. It introduces and explains alot of new ideas and then references and expands upon them later on so it would be a bit jarring to skip chapters. Chapter 1 would compliment Red Skin, White Masks well. Chapter 2 or 3 could work well with Critical Forum: On the Uses of Settler Colonial Studies, “Is settler colonial studies even useful” + “OMG settler colonial studies response to Lorenzo Verancini’s is settler colonial studies even useful”.

        Introduction My Radical Resurgent Present p.1-11

        Discussion of colonialism, settler colonialism, Radical Resurgence (the radical transformation of Indigenous life), and gender in Ninshnaabeg.

        4) Ninshnaabeg Internationalism 55-71

        5) Nishnaabeg Anticapitalism 71-83

        Title speaks for itself. Meeting and interview with Naomi Klein.

        6) Endlessly Creating Our Indigenous Selves p.83-95

        10) “I see Your Light”: Reciprocal Recognition and Generative Refusal p.175-191

        11) Embodied Resurgent Practice and Coded Disruption p.191-211

        Daily practices of decolonialism, everyday acts of resurgence, refusing colonial spatialities, resurgent artistic spatialities.

        12) Constellations of Coresistence 211-233

        How to collectively order through the Nishnaabeg idea of constellations. Example of artist collective that embodies indigenous values of individuated creation, and collaborative, interdependent communality.
        An example of a mobilisation withing grounded normativity: Idle No More movement. Discussion of the use of the internet, how the movement was built and the relationship to allies.

        Conclusion Toward Radical Resurgent Struggle 233-249

      • Another Day in the Colony Chelsea Watego

        Skimmed through the book. It’s very light reading, theory is mentioned here and there but generally not discussed in depth. It’s a very personal account of experiences with racism, and colonialism as a Black person. I found the relationships made with different types of theory interesting, but in general kind of boring. The most interesting chapters imo are 4,5,6 and the last chapter

        Introduction

        Set’s the stage for what the book is about, who it is written for and why CW chose personal prose. CW intends on telling stories that matter to capital B Black people, regarding the everyday experiences of colonial violence.

        1. don’t feed the natives

        CW’s early childhood experiences coming to terms with her identity/racism. Issues in academia.

        2. animals, cannibals and criminals

        CW problematises depictions of Indigenous people in literature and childrens books. She talks about a storytelling war. She also discusses her experiences in the media and getting publicized in journals.

        3. the unpublishable story

        The production of knowledge about Indigenous people, by non-Indigenous people.

        4. on racial violence, victims, and victors

        She talks about the difference between experiential knowledge and academic knowledge and her issues with academia.

        5. ambiguously indigenous

        People taking up indigeneity based on biology.

        6. fuck hope

        Similar to affropessimism

        a final word … on joy

        The politics of ‘self care’ and how its dumb

The session seeks to explore the nuances of defining cumbia as hybrid, mestiza (“mixed race”), or creolising, and to consider more broadly the place of music as a practice of decolonisation.\n\nThis week’s readings start with listening to (and watching) how the sound of Colombian cumbia has shifted from 1940s to the present day. Starting as a folk music recorded for export by the burgeoning Colombian music industry, to it becoming associated with urban ghettos across Latin America, and ultimately its circulation as a hip global club sound. This story is summarised in a short video documentary focused on case of cumbia in Peru.\n\nIn addition to the audio files and short documentary video, we have two texts. A lecture on creolisation by Glissant himself, in which Glissant proposes that creolisation is applicable to the whole world beyond its usual Caribbean identification, and a critical and ethnomusicological history of cumbia as genre.\n\n \nItinerary\n\nA listening and reading recommended itinerary might go like this: listen to some Cumbia, then watch the short doco, and finally do the readings: \n\nVersions of the song Cumbia Sampuesana (only need to listen to a bit of each video) \n1940s Colombian folk music version by Conjunto Tipico Vallenato (featured in a Mexican film of the 1950s): https://youtu.be/AjGNMy-yneU \n1990s Mexican sound system version by Sonido La Changa (song starts at 1:27): https://youtu.be/6NVFMOh2bUk \n2000s Argentine ghetto cumbia version by Damas Gratis: https://youtu.be/8LBnl-49BKo \n2010s Australian digital cumbia version by Cumbia Cosmonauts: https://youtu.be/hxRcxONwHDs?t=269 \n‘Making Digital Cumbia in Peru’ on YouTube.
