In 2009 PBS aired a documentary series with the ambitious goal of chronicling the various styles of music made by Latino musicians here in the U.S. It was a daunting task for sure and they largely pulled it off. I mean, they had four hours to cover everything from accordions along the Texas-Mexican border to Afro Caribbean drums in New York.
From Latin jazz and mambo to salsa, Tejano, Chicano rock, Latin pop and reggaeton, join CCA for these film screenings to explore the story of the rise of new American music forged from powerful Latin roots.
