I can ‘t say that I have got only one favorite genre, I like everything. However, the most preferable one is dance music, especially Latin music. First of all, I would like to say a few words about Latin music itself. Latin music is a popular art form developed in various Latin American countries, mainly Cuba, and is unique for the type of rhythmic structures it builds upon. It is vocal and instrumental music, originally derived from African religious ironies, however viewed today primarily as dance music.
Its strongest characteristic is its rhythm. It is traditionally played by native percussion and string instruments, namely the timbale’s, congas, bongo, guitar, and the trees (nine-string Cuban guitar). Over time, the piano replaced the guitar as the choral instrument, while the bass, woodwinds, trumpets and trombones were added to play melodies and riffs (repetitions of sound). Latin music is mainly defined by four elements: Music style, geography, cultural background of the artist, and language.
Music style includes genres such salsa, Backchat, Latin Pop and Regional Mexican music. For the most part, geography refers to Latin America and the Iberian Peninsula. The cultural background includes artists from Latin America or artists with a Latin (Europe)/Latino (US) background. Language refers to Spanish and Portuguese. These four elements interact in different ways and very often a combination of only two or three of these elements is enough to place a given production into the Latin music genre.
Famous Latin music artists include legendary singers, songwriters and musicians such as Julio Gallerias, Vaccine Fernando, Celia Cruz, Acetate Evolves, La Sonora Ponca, Selene and Los Tigress del Norte, as well as contemporary megastars like Shakier, Called 13, Man, Prince Royce, Junes, Don Omar and Juan Luis Guard. Now I ‘d like to say about samba music. Samba Rhythm and Music Samba music, with its distinctive rhythm, is highlighted by original Brazilian musical instruments, including the tambourine, Calhoun, record-record and cabala.
Samba is danced to music with a tempo of about 100 beats per minute. The fast and energetic rhythm of Samba music encourages spontaneous dancing, such as in the streets during a Carnival celebration. Finally, this kind of music makes me feel alive. It lifts my mood when I am down. The fast rhythm of the songs makes my head nod up and down and my feet stomp all around the place. Dance music makes me happier even if I ‘m already happy, and may be even makes me want to get up and dance no matter where I am or who is watching.
