Thread Name: Hispanic or Latino music?
Subject: RE: Hispanic or Latino music?
My reading glasses broke a few days ago, and I haven't had a chance to get new ones made, so I am reading and writing using my driving glasses. This means that the screen is blurry unless I am about four feet away, in which case I am too far away to read it--

I really sympathize with your situation--I have always been fascinated by obscure ethnic regional music, and have ended up with many records and CD's that I didn't want because the music was obscure, even to people from the country of origin--Arhoolie and Down Home will help you out, though--and, if you can, be sure to see "Chulas Fronteras" you may even be able to rent it, if you have a cool video store, or borrow it from the library--
