I'm interested in discovering other Latin American rock or pop bands. Never know if I'm missing out on a band that I might like if I knew they exist. lol

This thread might serve the same purpose for others too, so please share the singers/bands you like. Please include the name of the singer/band and the country they are from.

By Latin American lets use the broadest definition, that is rock/pop from Spanish, Portuguese, and French speaking America. Also any bands from countries that don't speak those languages, but the singers/bands sing in any of the three languages are welcome in this thread.

Some of the ones I like are (in no particular order):

Juanes (Colombia)





Mana (Mexico)





Enanitos Verdes (Argentina)

I don't actually like this band, but this song in particular is to my liking.



Negros (Dominican Republic)

Negros (means Black in Spanish) is the 'official' name, but he also sells his music by his proper name of Wason Brazoban.



Bocatabu (Dominican Republic)

The Brazilian Pop Rock was very popular in the 80s, I don't know if you left them out because they are old, but there are several good and well-known names from those times.

This site suggests people to know new bands, that are very unknow in he country, that is playing a lot of Sertanejo and Brazilian Funk on the mainstream - and the not so young guys like me are still listening to the old songs exactly like it decribes.

You're right, most rock bands popular in Brazil are those started in the 80's, like Capital Inicial, Titãs, Biquini Cavadão, Paralamas do Sucesso, Engenheiros do Hawaii, among others.

But don't forget some bands that started in the 90's, and even in the first half of the 2000's also reached some popularity, like Charlie Brown Jr (now extinct, with two former members already dead), O Rappa, Raimundos, CPM 22 and Fresno, for example.

There are many good new bands started in the past 7 or 8 years, but none are really popular. They don't have much space in radio and TV. In fact, rock music has little space in Brazilian radio and TV now, much less than it once had. And the space still available is very rarely occupied by the newest bands. It doesn't mean there are no good new bands, they just don't have much space in the media. The media is now monopolized by "sertanejo universitario" and "funk carioca" (and in the Northeast you can add forró to the list).

On my trips to Costa Rica, I heard some hard rock on the radio in spanish. Very good. Too bad I dont know the names of them.

There was this particular song that was recorded live at a concert since you can hear the audience. It was a very long song. It went on forever. It had wind instruments too like trumpet, and saxophone in it.

Soda Estereo is good.

Brazilian band "Capital Inicial" copied that song ("Musica Ligera") with another name and similar lyrics, but few people in Brazil knows it's a copy, hehe... The Brazilian version is "À Sua Maneira"

:P... Great threat !!!

Love discovering new groups... (some of these groups may not fit the rock or pop bands description exactly.. but there amazing so I will try to get them squeezed in :P).

Calle 13 (Puerto Rico) ... too good to be classified in any one category



Systema Solar (Colombia)



Lisa Leblanc (Canada, French Acadian Singer)



Shakira (Colombia)... yeah I know pretty much a household name, but just in case you someone does not already know her





Carlos Vives (Colombia)






Hope this thread gets lost of responses because I am looking forward to discovering some new music to put on my iphone !
