I love the music of Mongo Santamaria and Tito Puente. Not sure what the style is called, but love those drums! They get you going and keep you moving. When I lived in NYC I used to see them and other great mucis at the Blue Note; like Tania Maria and Michelle Camillo. Wow, that was fun!

I love Putumayo's music! In the area of Latin music, I currently have two salsa CDs from them but I would love to hear more from various styles. Rumba, Mambo, and Cha Cha Cha would be great!

I don't really know the names of the types of Latin music. I do know that I like the music of Tito Puente, which I believe is along the lines of Jazz !! I just like being introduced to new types of music and Putumayo Records is great at doing that. Love the music they have introduced me to so far !!

When I was a girl, my mother would put on Xavier Cougat and cha cha cha around the living room. Much later in my life, I took up ballroom and latin dancing and the cha cha cha has always been my favorite!

I love the smooth beats of Brazilian music, but I also love the up-beat latin music like the Gypsy Kings. My husband from Venezuela has introdused me to all kinds of latin music.

Tito Puente reigns as the King of Latin music! I met him in 1980--my band warmed up his at the Montreux Switzerland Jazz Fest-Alfredo De la Fe was his violinist

Rumba is our favorite! My husband and I started ballroom dance lessons 1 1/2 years ago, and go faithfully every week. We consider it our date night, and have had a blast! Best "marriage counseling" ever! We've learned several Latin dances--Swing, Cha-Cha, and Rumba, but we've really taken to Rumba. We've been looking for CD's to be able to practice our dances at home with, so this would be perfect!

Pasillo is a genre of indigenous Latin music. It is extremely popular in Ecuador, where it is the "national genre of music." Pasillo as a genre is also present in the mountainous regions of Colombia, Panama and Venezuela. In its waltz, pasillo alters the classically European dance form to accompany guitar, mandolin, and other string instruments.
