I just love Latin music. The Mambo, Salsa, Cha Cha, Rumba.... and PBS. What do these have in common you ask? There is a fabulous 2 part series on PBS titled "Latin Music USA". Narrated by Jimmy Smits, it is a look at the history and roots of Afro Cuban music. I guarantee that your toes will be tapping and you won't be able to sit still.
"From Latin jazz and mambo to salsa, Tejano, Chicano rock, Latin pop and reggaeton, LATIN MUSIC USA tells the story of the rise of new American music forged from powerful Latin roots and reveals the often overlooked influence of Latin music on jazz, hip hop, rhythm and blues and rock 'n' roll."
Part II tomorrow night, Monday, 9pm. Here is the link to watch it online if you miss it.
Get yourself a cocktail and enjoy!
