The Center of Excellence for Latin American and Iberian Music fosters the research, performance, and the study of art music, popular music, and traditional music from the Spanish and Portuguese speaking world. Currently, the UTB music faculty is interacting with Latin American and Iberian music in a variety of ways through research, performance, and education. CELAIM acknowledges the established excellence of our music program, and distinguishes us as we draw on our strengths and deepen our expertise in Latin American and Iberian musical studies. CELAIM highlights the scholarly research, performance activities, educational projects, and courses offered at UTB while also serving as an important link to other research sources and activities.
