In praise of Latin music
December, 11; 2018. By
Today there are many styles, songs, compositions, artists, and other musical fauna that swarms through our small world. And although mainly Anglo-Saxon pop music, including its African-American variants such as blues, rock, soul, etc., has serious intentions of unseating Latin music as the undisputed queen of popular musical sentiment, we say that even if it has tried, we believe that it has not been able to dethrone the wealth and quality, in all the senses, of the well-known Latin music.

And is that the mixture that has given the union of the Spanish language mainly (and Portuguese to a lesser extent, along with some other minority languages) with the roots of Central and South America is so vast that even in this editorial we do not know it in its entirety. Multitudes of genres and styles, some of them to dance, others not: Boleros, bachatas, guajiras, rancheras, habaneras, tangos, zambas, salsas, guantanameras, and a very long etcetera, complete the cast of Latin music.

If we add flamenco, the coming and going rumbas, the zarzuela, and other music more typical of the Spanish metropolis, we will have the kind of music, Latin, perhaps richer, more complex, of quality, popular, close, and any other positive adjective that anyone can think of in our little world. That is why the symbiosis between Spain and the territories of New India has not been able to fall in better luck, since who is opposed to this great collective work that includes some of the best artists worldwide?

If we were asked what is the genre, within Latin music, that we like most in our publishing house, we would have it clear: The bolero (deeply cultivated by the well-known Los Panchos group) is the king style of kings of Latin music.
