Latin jazz, also called Afro-Cuban jazz, is a style of music that blends rhythyms and percussion instruments of Cuba and the Spanish Caribbean with jazz and its fusion of European and African musical rhythyms. Listening to Latin jazz makes you want to move! For the past several decades. Latin Jazz has continued to thrive in a variety of Latin genres and evolve incorporating all kinds of elements from the Latin music world. As we watch videos and listen to many recordings, we will also talk about all of these bands and examine how Latin Jazz began while changing over the years.
