This chapter studies the history of religious music, which received little public recognition within the atheist state, and takes note of some of the specific ways that religious music, especially that of Afro-Cuban groups, has been affected by socialist doctrine. It describes the negative attitudes toward religious repertoire during the 1950s, records the repression of many forms of expression in the following decades, and discusses the explosion in religious music performance after the Fourth Party Congress in 1991.
