Film: Latin Music USA: Bridges

  • Normal Public Library Normal, IL (map)

This fresh take on American musical history reaches across five decades to portray the rich mix of sounds created by Latinos and embraced by all. See the rise of Latin jazz with the great Machito and the explosion of the mambo with Pérez Prado. And watch as Latin music infiltrates R&B and rock throughout the 1960s, from the Drifters to Santana up to today. We will be focusing on Episode 1: Bridges.
