Drums, strings, brass and more – all you need to know about Latin music’s instruments
BEYOND REGGAETON: THE LATIN SERIES
- 21 May
Want to dive into Latin music? You’ll be surrounded by a wealth of rhythms and passion as you enjoy a huge variety of musical styles from Brazil, Mexico, Puerto Rico, Argentina, Cuba, the Dominican Republic and more.
Get away from it all with the tropical rhythms of son, rhumba, merengue and salsa, dance to crossover styles such as reggaeton and Latin pop, then fall in love with classic romantic boleros and sensual Argentine tango.
Across the Latin American continent, styles vary country by country. There are the electronic sounds of Nu-Brazil, together with the more traditional Brazilian Carnival sambas and chilled-out bossa nova. Mexico has a range of regional genres, such as norteño, corridos and banda. Travel to Argentina for a sensual tango, or Cuba for bolero.
Audio Network works with local composers, musicians and artists to harness the passion and authenticity of Latin music, making our tracks perfect for everything from TV to film soundtracks, advertising to digital and games.
