Latinos have made great contributions in music.  One of my favorite singers is Ruben Blades.

Blades is a Panamanian salsa singer, songwriter, actor, and Latin jazz musician. He attended Harvard Law school and is also an activist.

As songwriter, Blades brought the lyrical sophistication of Central American nueva canción and Cuban nueva trova as well as experimental tempos and politically inspired Nuyorican salsa to his music. (Wikipedia info)

 

Enjoy his music.
