I love flamenco guitar! My fathers family is from Spain and whenever I hear that music it makes me feel a connection to my fathers roots. It really makes me feel like dancing all over the house.

Having grown up in New York City I miss the music of Puerto Rico; when I came to Los Angeles this was not to be found; the closest that I have come to it is in the music of Cuba. Buena Vista Social Club - the movie and the CD of the same name is amazing; I was fortunate to see those musicians live at UCLA; shortly thereafter several of them passed away.

I'm a huge fan of the mambo! I think it comes from watching too much Dirty Dancing when I was a kid.

Latin music is the ultimate in soul through sound. I move to the beat of samba and salsa songs while running on the lake or while riding in my car. It allows me to feel and see the outer elements of life on a truly deep level.

As a kid I too watched 'I Love Luci' and loved Ricky Ricardo's music and fun loving dances- the Mambo always looked less structured and more fun than the Tango but I love all the music from both styles. Every CD I have ever played from Putamayo has been outstanding and I love all of them!

Being Latin, I grew up with salsa, cumbia, merengue, more recently bachata, so I find it impossible not to tune to the rhythms whenever I listen to them. I particularly like Cumbia because this is what we would dance for Christmas or parties or any "folksy" events. It is more the music of the people's. I also enjoy Colombian salsa because I find it has such a strong West African influence with its choirs and high pitch sounds. Yet, my heart most rejoices with Brazilian Bossa Nova, with its sweet melancholic tunes.

I don't have a favorite because I haven't been exposed to much Latin music--that's why I need the collection.

I love Latin music with a little reggaeton style. I teach Zumba and anything upbeat is great!

When my energy is feeling a bit low, I always turn to Govi on my ipod. His guitar soothes and clears my head. I love Latin music for th energy and imagination it inspires!

I love the Latin beat, the Latin sound, the Latin energy! Just wish I had time to learn the Latin dances to really get into the whole adventure.

I love Latin music! My son and I took a dance class a few years back. And my favorite dance to learn was the Mambo! Wonderful memories of a fun time shared with my son!
