Las Tradiciones Musicals De Latino América (Musical traditions of Latin America)


Adult Enrichment / Languages -
Summer 2021

Music can be a wonderful way to gain insights into different cultures. Explore the diverse styles of music that come from Latin America through this interactive class led in both English and Spanish. As we listen to examples of influential and current genres including mambo, cumbia, salsa, merengue, we’ll also learn some Spanish through discussions of the lyrics. Each week we’ll trace the history and development of the styles that have emerged from places such as México, Argentina, Venezuela, Central America, Cuba, and Puerto Rico. Many people know of Latin American performers when they make the crossover into the American market. However, very few in this country have an awareness of the rich musical heritage of the countries in their own backyard. Expand your knowledge of Latin America and gain appreciation for the incredible music in a whole new way. Please note: Basic knowledge of Spanish is required (for those who have taken Spanish: Level 1 or have equivalent knowledge).
