LATIN MUSIC CONCERTS
Latin music refers to music that originates from Latin countries. However, more broadly, people associate Latin music with Spanish and Portuguese speaking regions of the world. Latin music is a huge genre with many pieces to it, because the countries that contribute to the genre are all individual, with their own histories, traditions, and cultures sculpting their arts. To learn more about experiencing Latin music and picking concerts to attend, read below.
Before choosing which Latin concert to see live, it is important to think about variations within the genre. Latin music spans tons of sub-genres, because the musical traditions of each country are unique. For example, the popular types of Latin music include the bolero (Spain), merengue (Dominican Republic), samba (Brazil), bossa nova (Brazil), choro (brazil), tango (Argentina and Uruguay), bachata (Dominican Republic), reggaeton (Puerto Rico, Panama, and Jamaica), cumbia (Colombia), salsa (Cuba), corrido (Mexico), tropicalia (Brazil), vallenato (Colombia), mambo (Cuba) and more. This makes Latin music perfect for listeners who want to explore with sound, taking in the history, culture, and arts of a place far from home.
Despite the differences in music from the Caribbean Islands, Mexico, and Central and South Americas, there are plenty of similarities in these styles of music. For instance, many of them have similar rhythms, which are derived from Moorish music and African music centuries ago. Other common elements that are indicative of Latin music include call-and response-patterns, improvisation, and expressive instrumentals. These instruments range from claves, maracas, cajon, quena, chajchas, bombo, charango and zamponas. Many of these instruments are made from natural materials, such as tree trunks, shells, and gourds. These features make Latin music conducive to sensual, earthy sounds, so it is no wonder why Latin music is associated with movement and dance, making it excellent for listeners who want to groove along at a concert or take up dance lessons before attending. An excuse to get a little closer to a dance partner makes it a convenient date night option, too.
With the Latin music genre being used to describe so many divergent sounds, it can be hard to get a feel for what to expect in concert. If it seems unfamiliar, just consider some of the most popular Latin musicians of recent years. Many of these musicians are household names: Ricky Martin, Gloria Estefan, Shakira, Enrique Iglesias, Paco de Lucia, Hector Lavoe, Selena, Jennifer Lopez, Carlos Santana, Pitbull, Celia Cruz, Menudo, Christina Aguilera, Daddy Yankee, Thalia, and Residente. Widely and deeply loved, the devoted fan bases of these artists and widespread popularity of their songs speaks volumes.
Latin music concerts will appeal to many types of music lovers—the technically-minded, the dancers, the daters, the go-getters. For rich, layered, velvety music, search for some Latin concerts near you.
