Around the World: Music from Latin America

Sometimes a song reminds you of a place you have been in the past or friends and family. A tune might stay in your mind because you like it so much. Listening to music can be memorable for us.

Looking at the Latin music greats like Carlos Santana, Tito Puente, and Bebo Valdes, they infuse instruments from around the world to implement a unique spin on Latin music.  These particular rhythms have been influenced by music from Spain and Africa. These strong beats come from a long history of the past enriched in tradition. The Latin style comes from Central America, and South America, and is performed in Spanish, Portuguese, and Latin-based Creole. Spanish musicians have been known to cross over to a mainstream sound in the English market. Then there are artists that also do reverse crossover. By recording their music in English then mastering them in Spanish they are able to reach a broader audience.

It’s exciting to listen to the different styles of Latin music and the cultures from countries around the world.
