Top 5 artists you should be listening to this week
These are the recommendations of Latin American music that you will not find in other lists.
This Venezuelan artist is part of the new wave of artists who, despite the situation in their country, continue to carry their flag far through their musical production. "Sentado" is part of her new production and was released as a single in November 2017. Vega was the winner of the Latin Grammy Award for Best New Artist in 2014.
When we talk about Latin American influence in American music, we can not leave out Los Lobos, a fusion group between rock, Tex-Mex and even the blues that made California its broadcasting platform. With more than forty years of experience, Los Lobos have been one of the few Latin groups that have had their songs in video games such as Guitar Hero.
This young Spanish singer vindicates the power of flamenco in any scenario. Through the appeasement of traditional music, Rosalía has come to the lists of pop music as "the cantaora that this new generation needed".
We come back to this fantastic Brazilian band because ... well, why not? Their music has revolutionized the Brazilian music scene for over a decade and has reached the Latin American stages despite the linguistic gap, only by the quality of its production. "Sinta-Se em Casa" is their new single, and we cannot help but recommend it.
This is another face of the music of the country of Samba. Barbatuques is a band whose only instrument is its own body. Established in 1995 as a group in São Paulo, they have approached the composition through the exploration of voice tones and percussion techniques. Baianá is part of their 2005 album O Seguinte é Esse.
