Docs That Rock

England Celebrates Latin Music

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Go figure a major four hour doc about the influence of Latin American music in the US ends up on the BBC. Even more galling, the doc is available on the Internet..but “geocoded” so that U.S. viewers can’t see it (though I know there is an easy way to google search around this problem. Hint, hint.) Or maybe you’re lucky enough to get BBC Four on your cable system. The project covers the roots from the early influences of Salsa all the way today to popular Latin inspired pop and reggaeton. Also weaves in Latin’s musical influence in pop culture, from Miami Vice to the movie Scarface. The four hour series features artists like Ruben Blades, Los Lobos, Santana, Linda Ronstadt, Selena, Jennifer Lopez, Ricky Martin, Shakira, Gloria Estefan and more.
