The Latin Tinge
Fri, Apr 28, 7:30 - 10:00 pm
Concert Hall, FEC
Latin music has had more influence on American popular culture than any other source outside the United States. From the late 1920s till the end of World War II Latin music moved into the mainstream as American popular song composers incorporated Latin elements into their works and Latin American composers entered the popular song field. Their combined efforts have produced many standard songs that remain favorites to this day – “Perfidia”, “Besame Mucho”, “Adios”, and many others.
