th lectures

This website traces the history of LatinX in rock music since the early 1900's, looking at key artists, songs, sounds and albums that shaped Latin American rock in context with social and political environments. Learn about the influence of rock as an art form for rebellious Latin American youth and the influence of native Latin American music in Western rock. Join us on a chronological musical journey from '50s calypso and surf music, '60s youth movements and sounds, and '70s political repression to '80s internationalization, the '90s Latin Alternative movement, and current Latin American rock musical forms.
