"Latin music" is a term used to describe a wide variety of music styles from Spanish- and Portuguese-speaking countries and regions, such as Mexico, Puerto Rico, Cuba, and Brazil. Some examples of Latin music genres include salsa, merengue, bachata, and cumbia. These styles often feature a mix of African, Indigenous, and European influences and are characterized by their rhythms and use of percussion instruments such as congas, bongos, and timpani.

Salsa, for example, originated in Cuba in the early 1900s and is characterized by its fast-paced, syncopated rhythms and use of horns and percussion instruments. Merengue, on the other hand, is a style of music and dance that originated in the Dominican Republic and is characterized by its fast-paced, two-step rhythm and use of accordion and percussion instruments. Bachata, which also originated in the Dominican Republic, is a slower and more romantic style of music, characterized by its use of guitar and percussion instruments. Cumbia, which originated in Colombia, is a style of music and dance characterized by its use of accordion, flute, and percussion instruments.

In addition to these traditional styles, there are also many modern variations and fusion styles of Latin music, such as reggaeton, which combines elements of reggae and hip-hop with traditional Latin rhythms, and Latin pop, which combines elements of pop music with traditional Latin rhythms and instruments.

Overall, Latin music is known for its diverse range of styles and rhythms, and it continues to be an important part of the global music scene, influencing and being influenced by other music genres around the world.

Bossa Nova composition with jazz instruments: saxophones, pianos and contrabass. Creative solos playing under the main structure. The music is instrumental and the mood is fun and happy.. This track fits very well in productions with fun topics, as a background.

A nice little 85 BMP piece with guitar, piano, bass, and flute. Kind of jazzy and slightly blues-y with a more rocking beat. The bass in this piece is actually a sample from an 18th century double bass. Most latin players aren't likely to be on one of these... but...

When I think of Cuba, I think of one thing; Nickel mines! Moa, Cuba (aka "The Sudbury of the Caribbean") has had Canadian assistance in its mining for quite some time now. From what I can tell, it is much better for Canadian companies to poison far-away water than Canadian...

An experiment in reverb. The piece itself has two Spanish guitars with lots of different percussion backings. The congas are definitely reverb-affected more noticeably than the bells or cymbals.<BR>

Sort of Spanish, sort of Tom Waits. This one is hard to classify.

This one was designed to be played at low volumes under people doing things like talking or fixing broken PS4s. Spicy, spicy broken PS4s. Mmmm.... Latin music can be really effective when used in visual content. This piece is just plain latin! No big changes throughout the song.

What makes a Bossa Nova a Bossa Nova? Whatever it is, this has it double! Or maybe it is just compensating for its relatively simple chord progression. Enjoy your Bossa! Probably. Probably a Bossa Nova.

Is it a samba? Probably. It also depends on how broadly you define a samba. Percussion comes in heavy later in the piece with a pile of street drummers for a thicker feel. I'm having a hard time describing the exact groove of this piece. "Slightly whiter than average samba"?...
