AMERICAN MASTERS: JOAN BAEZ: SING ME BACK HOME

LATIN MUSIC USA


Monday, October 12 at 9 p.m.

Latin Music USAFrom 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--and on all of American culture. It traces the rise of Latin jazz and the explosion of the mambo and the cha-cha as they swept the U.S. from East to West and looks at how Latin music infiltrated rhythm and blues and rock ā€˜nā€™ roll through the 1960s. The program also explores how Puerto Ricans and other Latinos in New York reinvented the son cubano and the plena from Puerto Rico by adding elements from soul and jazz to create salsa ā€” which became a defining rhythm for Latinos.
