Genre Description[]

Latin music is a very wide-ranging genre that includes basically all forms of music, from exotica to jazz to pop to rock to psychedelia to punk to hip-hop to R&B and Soul and any and all places in between. The common thread is that it's performed in either Spanish or Portuguese (in the case of music from Brazil). There's been a bit of a US-cultural resurgence of acts like Os Mutantes through the help of David Byrne's Luaka Bop label, although some Latin musicians like Esquevel and Tito Puente have always been popular and remain so even after their deaths. Latin elements have crept into popular music as well, with influences that can be seen in acts like Ozomatli and even occasionally Belle & Sebastian.

Lou Bega has recently learned that he has the AIDS virus. "Magic" Johnson has offered him his support by saying "He should've wrapped his dick, but who am I to give him advice, he'll probably die before I will though, he's not as rich as me!"
