Does anybody listen to any kinds of latin music? I figured this board probably doesn't listen to a whole lot, so I'm gonna bunch all of it in here. Mambo, tango, songo, samba, reggaeton, waila, tejano, bossa nova, etc.

Personally, Los Lobos are one of my favorite groups ever. I saw them live several years ago and they were fantastic.

I'm sure most, if not all, of you guys know Carlos Santana. Then there's Ruben Blades, Tito Puente, and Manu Chau.


but yeah, here's some FANTASTIC Los Lobos songs:

Also worth a look, but a lot of you probably know them already, the Buena Vista Social Club:

btw, if anyone mentions La Bamba, I think I might go apeshit.

Si yo fuera matador....


La vida es una tombola.

Can't remember the rest, but that song is fucking great and good Spanish music has a quality to it that sets it apart. Manu Chao is huge in France, strangely enough.

The closest thing to latin music that I listen to is the Voodoo Glow Skulls.

I actually like Paulina Rubio, Shakira and La 5a Estación, which would go under the genre of Latin music I think :)

I know, its just mainstream Lation pop, but me hearing Música Latina Americana all the way here in Norway is actually quite impressing I'd say :p
