With so many great original tradional sounds coming out of South America it remains hard for artists to get the same focus as the music does. We all know Samba, Bossa, Cumbia, Tango, Son, Mambo but most people can scarcely name as many names of acts as there are genres of latin music. In many cases the acts may well have left South America to work or even originate from the many city's of the US that South American's emigrate to. Otherwise they will be one of the stark satanic metal bands that the continent excels in producing.
For a variety on the traditional latin music you do not have to become a metalhead, there are many groups desperate for attention who are succesfully adopting the legacy of traditional latin music and blending it with influences from western rock, punk, ska, funk and disco to make great music for both their home market and those seeking to listen to something fresh overseas.
