Forged over hundreds of years, Latin and Caribbean musical styles are varied, unique, and an integral part of life in this region. Music from Latin America influences people all over the world. Some historical contributions include Cuban son, Argentinian tango, Jamaican reggae, and many other forms. This book explores the history of Caribbean and Latin music, from the original indigenous tribes through the development of Latin jazz to modern music from artists like Daddy Yankee, Rhianna, and many others. The Mason Crest series Evolution and Cultural Influences of Music in Society examines the history and development of popular musical genres. Books in this series provide young readers with a greater understanding of each musical genre, and how it has contributed to and shaped American popular culture over the past half-century.
