The incredible variety of music that emerged from Latin America transformed the music and culture of the U.S. in the last century. You can follow the rhythms from New Orleans musicians incorp. Caribbean beats and sounds into the music that was becoming jazz, to the mid-century mambos of Desi Arnaz and Tito Puente, through to the pop of Julio Iglesias, and the rock of Santana and Los Lobos, the Buena Vista explosion, and the success of Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony. This book explains each of the Latin musical forms -- bossa nova, cumbia, merengue, tango, ranchera, rumba son, salsa -- in the context of the countries in which they arose. Traces each of these forms as they migrated north, and explains how they were absorbed into the Amer. mix.
