A behind-the-scenes look at 50 years of Latin pop music
In her new book, a titan of the Latin music industry lifts the veil on the inspiration and artistry behind 19 anthemic songs in genres including salsa, reggaeton, ballads and corridos that “defined movements and moments” over the past five decades.
Teeming with insights and anecdotes from a who’s who of popular Latin music, the book explores chart-topping tracks and the keys to their success.
