As I write I am watching the “In Performance at the White House: Fiesta Latina” and just heard President Obama say “Cuban Salsa” and he even got up to dance! If you get a chance, check out the program on PBS, it is the white house’s tribute to Latin music live at the south lawn of the white house. It aired on Oct 15th, and is airing again right now. This goes along well with my theme lately of Latin Music in the US.

I leave you with another book on the subject: The Latin Tinge: The Impact of Latin Music on the United States.
