  • THE SALSA REVOLUTION: Puerto Ricans and other Latinos in New York reinvent Cuban and Puerto Rican rhythms, adding elements from soul and jazz to create salsa. Follow the rise and fall of legendary Fania Records with famed artists Willie Colón, Héctor Lavoe, and Rubén Blades.
  • THE CHICANO WAVE: From Ritchie Valens and Freddy Fender to Linda Ronstadt, Los Lobos, and Selena, a new generation of Mexican Americans raised on rock, rhythm and blues, and country music expresses their cultural identity through Chicano rock, Latin rock, and Tejano.
  • DIVAS & SUPERSTARS: Latin pop explodes with the success of artists like Ricky Martin, Shakira, and Gloria Estefan. But as studios concentrate on star-driven pop, Latino youth gravitate toward the urban fusions of reggaetón artists like Daddy Yankee and rapper Pitbull, while rock en español star Juanes becomes a global phenomenon.

    An instant favorite

    I caught the series on PBS when it originally aired and found it capitvating because I love Latin music. I spent time in Peru this summer with friends who spent long hours discussing differnet genres of music that to me were merely 'Latin'. This series came along and filled in the many gaps in my education. It also helped me make connections between the bits and pieces of the Latin music scenen with which I was familiar and the bigger picture of which I was completely unaware. I also really liked the broad histoical perspective from contmeporary Latin stars like Juanes and Shakira to rock classics like Carlos Santana to Latin music royalty like Celia Cruz, Tito Puente, and their predecessors.

    I have since used the series as a basis for lectures on Latin muysic in my Introduction to Latin American Studies class. The fact that the series makes connections between trends in Latin America and popular culture in the US helped me bring home the message to my students that 'Latin America' is NOT some far away place, not even in our 'backyard'; it is here in our front yards, in our streets and in our American souls.
