Did you watch the second episode of LATIN MUSIC USA last night? It was very informative and provided some interesting history and trivia. It is very similar to the AMERICAN SABOR exhibit that was at the Experience Music Project in 2007/2008. Overall, both programs give a good overview of Latin music in the US. (Now I get why I loved all those rock & roll bands my parents listened to from the 1950s. See “The Secret Latin Sounds of Rock and Roll.”  As a kid I’d get out their old records, and now it makes sense–that music had Latin influence. That was a “aha” moment for me.)

Check out the American Sabor website. Although, the exhibit is no longer at the EMP, the website still has some live links.

And, if you missed Latin Music USA–you can watch the entire program on their website.
