After sharing some of our heroes of Chicano rock, we wanted to continue the deep dive into Latin music in America with 30 heroes of Latin Rock. Not to be confused with Rock en Español, Latin rock is defined as “a music subgenre consisting of melting traditional sounds and elements of Latin American and Caribbean folk with rock music.”
From Chicano rock forefathers Lalo Guerrero and Don Tosti to the artists of today, Latin rock has allowed us to take a popular and important musical genre and put our unique spin on it, with glorious results. And it’s the end of the year, so your rock playlists might need some updating! Don’t sleep on these amazing artists.
Without further ado, we wanted to share 30 artists who made their mark in Latin rock. Check it out, learn more about this Latinx excellence, and share the culture with others!
