dc.description.abstract This thesis aims to analyze the representation of the Latino undocumented immigrant in Spanish language music. The migratory process through which the undocumented immigrant will pass on his/her way to the United States will be examined. In this work, the mentioned migratory process will be considered to consist of three stages. The first will consist of the migrants life before they arrive at the decision to emigrate, the second will entail the journey, and the last will involve the migrants life in the country to which he/she immigrates. The music analyzed in this body of work portray various characteristics of the undocumented migrant such as a victim of circumstance, a hard worker or a fighter. Many migrants also have the intention to return to their country of origin, however, this is not always the case. Religion or faith also have distinct representations and purposes in the songs included in the corpus. To conclude the work, the topic of voice will be examined to see if these songs do indeed give voice to the voiceless or if they take said voice away. en_US
