Our Daily Bleg: Spanish-Language Music, Please
I teach Spanish to kids in pre-K through 4th grade, and I play music of the Spanish-speaking world to expose them to aspects of the culture.
What specific artists and songs do residents of the Spanish-speaking world consider to be representative of a specific genre of music — e.g., tango, baladas, cumbia, etc.?
Moreover, I need free and legal music. Where do I go?
Addendum: This video of a marimba version of “New York, New York” sent in by commenter Pierre (thanks!) is fantastic. I think the N.Y. Yankees should bring these kids in to play after their victories instead of the old Sinatra version.
