Royalty Free Latin Music
Latin music is the genre we think of as describing popular
music coming from the Southern American countries, particularly
Cuba. It is unique for the type of rhythmic structures it
builds upon, and these rhythms are its strongest characteristic.
Each particular rhythm, such as the samba, salsa, rhumba, cha
cha cha, punta etc, is usually recognised by its very syncopated
structure. Often with Latin music, various rhythms are played at one time, create
counterpoint against each other resulting in exciting cross
rhythms. Latin music was traditionally played by native string
and percussion instruments such as the bongo, timbales, congas,
guitar (including the nine-string Cuban guitar known as the tres). As access to newer instruments improved over time,
they were added to the Latin music mix, so for example the piano replaced
the guitar as the choral instrument, while the bass, woodwinds,
trumpets and trombones were also added.
Cuban-originated music has achieved a lot of commercial success
in recent years, with artists such as Gloria
Estefan crossing over into the pop world and achieving
popularity worldwide, while guitarist Ry
Cooder and the Buena
Vista Social Club have re-ignited interest in the more
traditional 'son' form of Cuban music.
