    Outside Europe

    Throughout the nineteenth century and for a good part of the twentieth century, the contribution of musicians from North and South America was modest, and they maintained positions of epigonism with respect to European experiences: their contribution (which became sensitive at the level of art music through isolated exponents of the avant-garde, from C. E. Ives, Ruggles, J. Carrillo, up to the results of M. Kagel, E. Brown, M. Feldman, etc.) was remarkable in terms of the diffusion of folkloric forms (especially dances) that still maintain a significant place in the music of consumption around the world.

    The United States deserves a special mention as the meeting point of the many currents that converged in the impressive phenomenon of jazz, an expression that in the course of its history, while not renouncing its own originality, has continuously intersected the development of cultured music and that of consumption.
