This concluding chapter reexamines national and regional struggles over immigration policy. It reiterates how making music constitutes a form of political action and builds community through dialectical collaboration between musicians and audience members; in addition, it analyzes what this research means for a conceptualization of the city as a cultural center and for the future of Latino music in the U.S. South. After all, in the Latin music scene in Charlotte, musicians are making popular music in the midst of immense political, economic, and social change and despite the indifference of the Latin music industry. In practices such as the “collective circle,” they are demanding a right to the city and are making spaces where music lives and thrives as a uniquely southern and Latino cultural expression.
