Bibliography and discography of Latin American and Caribbean music - an ongoing project

Grupo Etnia performs Andean music at the Festival of the Sun at the National Museum of the American Indian, part of the Smithsonian in Washington, DC

One of my favorite pastimes is listening to music from Spain, Latin America and the Caribbean. Over the years I've developed some favorites. While I like mainstream music like salsa and merengue, I especially like to highlight styles of music that may not get as much attention, so as to level the playing field a little.

In the future I will highlight books, CDs, videos and other materials related to this subject, and intend to make this a recurring theme without any set deadline or limit. I hope that you enjoy these as I post them.
