Raices Latinas: Smithsonian Folkways Latino Roots Collection
Various Artists

Featuring some of the finest Latino roots music the Smithsonian Folkways archive has to offer from such artists as Nati Cano's Los Camperos, Luiz Bonfa, and Cuarteto Patria and Company Segundo (Buena Vista Social Club), this CD brings you to a Latino sound world beyond the conventional!

Much like Rock n Roll, Latino music evolved from folk traditions.  Raices Latinas is a celebration of these Amerindian, African and European influences in music of Latino heritage and a representation of the lively creativity that gives birth to the music of the Americas.  Including Latino roots music from the Caribbean to the Andes and from Brazil to the American Southwest, Raices Latinas invites you to discover the music behind La musica!
