The Latin pop explosion

From Afternoons, 2:15 pm on 10 July 2018

A few weeks ago we talked about the Irish pop music explosion of the 80's and 90's. Around the same time Latin music also took the world by storm.

We welcome back Jared Mackley-Crump, who is an ethnomusicologist at AUT who tells us how the Latin pop explosion began and plays us key songs from the time.
