La Musica Colombiana


So I've been inspired to write about la musica Colombiana. Latinos have such a variety of music in their veins that's it's almost impossible to write about it all. From Latin Jazz and Mambo to Salsa, Tejano, Chicano Rock, Latin pop, and Reggaeton. However, when it comes to Colombian music, I always enjoyed the sounds of vallenato; and today there's Shakira; one of Colombia's biggest selling artist. Some other inspiring Colombian artistas include Joe Arryoyo, Gali Galiano, Charlie Zaa, Fruko y sus Tesos, Carlos Vives, Binomio de oro and Tulio Zuloaga.

And if you're really into the history, check out the PBS special Latin Music USA airing October 12th and 19th. Their web-site really dives into the variety of music Latino culture offers.
