Depends what you like. Latin American music is quite varied, and the range expands if you open it to world music in general. For example, I love Mexican mariachi's, and the best recordings I've found of this genre are by none other than Linda Ronstadt (spelling?). "Canciones de Mi Padre" and the follow up "Mas Canciones" are absolutely stunning from both an "audiophile" POV and (for me) a music content POV. It helps if you understand SPanish and can follow the lyrics, of course. Another genre is "Nueva Trova", the South Americna version of singer-songwriter genre - try Silvio Rodriguez from Cuba, Soledad Bravo from Venezuela, etc. Again..best if you cna follow th lyrics. As for the newly popular Afrocuban Jazz, try any of the recent CD's from Cuban bassist Cachao, reissues of music by the Orquesta Aragon, anything by Irakere (Paquito D'Rivera's and Arturo Sandoval's old Cuban jazz grop), older recordings of Celia Cruz (before she wnet 100 % salsa), earlier Tito Puente, and so on and so on. In Spain, try Joan Manuel Serrat, Miguel Rios, Ana Belen, Luis Eduardo Aute, Corcovado or Victor Manuel. In Italy, try Eros Ramazzoti, Zucchero, Neri Per Caso, Pino Danielle. And there is of course Jacques Brel from Belgium and Edith Piaf or Mireille Matthieu from France.
