  "description": "This article, which analyzes 136 of Silvio Rodr\u00edguez's over 500 songs and provides a close reading of seventeen, highlights musical patterns that recur in songs with similar themes across three periods: 1967-1970, when Rodr\u00edguez was censured; 1971-1989, when nueva trova became institutionalized; and post-1990, in Cuba's Special Period. Differing viewpoints and emotions are often set in different keys (\"Debo partirme en dos\" (1969)); songs with a political message are set in simple repeating patterns (\"Resumen de noticias\" (1969)); and many of his love songs are highly chromatic or harmonically unstable (\"Ojal\u00e1\" (1969)). Double-plagal progressions often signify fatalism and never-ending struggle (\"Sue\u00f1o con serpientes\" (1974), \"Reino de todav\u00eda\" (1994)). Analyses are complemented by Rodr\u00edguez's comments regarding his creative process.",
