About this product
- DescriptionThe Latin explosion of Marc Anthony, Ricky Martin, and the Buena Vista Social Club may look like it came out of where, but the incredible variety of Latin music has been transforming the United States since the turn of the century, when Caribbean beats turned New Orleans music into jazz. In fact, we wouldn't have any of our popular music without it: Imagine pop sans the mambos of Perez Prado and Tito Puente, the garage rock of Richie Valens, or even the glitzy croon of Julio Iglesias, t to mention the psychedelia of Santana and Los Lobos and the underground cult grooves of newcomers like Bebel Gilberto. The Latin Beat outlines the musical styles of each country, then traces each form as it migrates rth. Morales travels from the Latin ballad to bossa va to Latin jazz, chronicles the development of the samba in Brazil and salsa in New York, explores the connection between the mambo craze of the 1950's with the Cuban craze of today, and uncovers the hidden history of Latis in rock and hip hop. The Latin Beat is the only book that explores where the music has come from and celebrates all of the directions it is going.
