please mods don't try and translate the names of the music. there are no translations for them to English for most of them and the risk of wrecking the translation is very high.

Man this was a tough one... almost impossible for me to answer.

The only way that I can make sense of the question is to start at the root and working my way down.

1. Afro-American ritualistic music (Santeria, Vodou, Candomblé)


Cuban Bata Drumming for Santeria Ceremony - Chango - YouTube

2. Those forms refined into the Samba, Mambo, cha-cha, merengue, and the forms that otherwise go under the term "Salsa."

3. All forms the Andean music of Peru, Bolivia, Ecuador.

4. Mariachi.

Two favorite recordings.

Mongo Santamaria "Sofrito"


Sofrito Mongo Santamaría - YouTube

Tito Puente's Oye Como Va (not this version but hey)


TITO PUENTE "Oye Como Va" (version) - YouTube

Man, thanks for reminding me there's another vast ocean of music I know zero about. Man, will I ever get time to distinguish all these 30+ genres? When I haven't even assimilated the entire Stephen Sondheim and Jule Styne catalogues yet?

I chose Polka Paraguaya simply because my second cousin is the president of the United States Polka Association, and surprise surprise, is about as Paraguayan as Jackie Chan.

Mariachi and all the various Mexican styles. Island and all that reggaeton nonsense I have no use for.
