Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Colors, cultures, and sounds collide amid The Rough Guide to Urban Latino, a multi-layered musical passport through Latin America. The trip starts off with the urban hip-hop sounds of Colombia's Zona Marginal ("No Mas") and glides through the complex cumbia rhythms of Ska Cubano (the charmingly weather-worn "Coqueteando") and Argentina's Yerba Brava (the deceptively cheery "Sos un Cheto"). The musical journey winds down via the electro-tinged sounds of Texas-based act Charanga Cakewalk ("El Indio") and Tijuana's Bostich ("Polaris"), dubbed the godfather of the Nortec musical hybrid Along the way, there are stops at reggaeton, commercial R&B and, of course, rock en espanol. Buenos Aires hip-hop trio Actitud Maria Marta offers a potent dose of girl power amid the sugary sweet harmonies of "Eres Re-Lindo," and Puerto Rico-based artist Nava conjures a sample-heavy salsa blend during "Hey You." Standout track "Riva" (courtesy Brazil's Arakatuba and vocalist Liliana Chachian) exemplifies the best this Rough Guide has to offer: A seamless mix of street smarts, time-honored tradition and an infectious, festive energy. --Joey Guerra

5.0 out of 5 stars Estupendo conscious hip-hop! April 10, 2006

Rough Guide's "Urban Latino" is a true gift. At turns joyful, indignant, subversive and easy to dance to, this CD offers something for any music fan, whether you speak Spanish or not. I'm currently studying Spanish, and the thoughtful lyrics of these songs are inspiring me to discover the meaning of every word I hear. The songs by Colombia's Zona Marginal and Argentina's Actitud Maria Marta are particularly powerful, and I'll be purchasing their CDs. I found Zona Marginal's CD for sale at the website of an organization called "Justice for Colombia." From interviews with the group, I learned that Zona's members have received death threats from Colombia's paramilitaries for their lyrics. Fortunately, they are receiving support from concerned people around the world, and Amnesty International sponsored Zona's tour of England.

The all-female hip-hop trio Actitud Maria Marta has a similarly potent political message that urges "their fellow Latin Americans to wake up to their collective cultural identity and fight for libertad and the right to rap" (from the liner notes). Their website provides a wealth of information on the cultural/political movement[...]
