Discover the fabulous music of Latin America with the latest limited edition, print-only specialist publication from Songlines magazine
After the success of our first special edition, which focused on the music of West Africa, we are very happy to announce Songlines Presents… The Music of Latin America, a new 100-page publication featuring country-by-country guides to the music and traditions of Latin America.
Our team of crack contributors have gone in-depth on the region’s big fish – Brazil, Mexico, Cuba, Argentina, etc – as well as those countries that deserve further attention – El Salvador, Paraguay, Martinique, the Guyanas, and many more. The articles put the contributions of major stars like Susana Baca, Calypso Rose, Bob Marley, Víctor Jara, Gilberto Gil and Lila Downs into context, and provide insight into the many musical styles and cultural influences that have defined this part of the world.
With an additional opinion piece, Essential 10 and reviews of over 120 recommended albums, this is our guide to one of the world’s most musically abundant regions, where music remains the soundtrack to political struggle just as much as it is the sound of carnival, religious festivities and inimitable fiestas.
The special edition Songlines Presents… The Music of Latin America is on sale now and available to order (free P&P for all UK orders)
