I've gotten pretty into learning Spanish and am starting to enjoy Spanish music. So far, that consists of solely Juanes. Any recommendations? I'm open to most all styles.

I like guitars, running, and math.

Vicente Fernandez, you will not regret.

edit; also Los Tigres Del Norte are really good too.

If you liked Juanes, check out Andres Cepeda and, if you don't already know them, Maná.
My signature lacks content. It is, however, blue.

Chceck Mike Patton's "Mondo Cane" - 22 covers of old spanish songs. Awesome masterpiece. I saw him on gig few days ago - the best live music experience I ever had.

Soda Stereo? Argentinian Spanish, but Spanish non-the-less.

Ok, they are kinda old but it's still rock.

ok awesome...thanks! I'll be checking them out tonight and tomorrow.
Haha, Juanes was introduced to me at school when we were "analyzing" A Dios Le Pido, then I got the CD from my teacher. School ended before I could get some recommendations from him.

Mariachi Vargas are incredible. My mariachi group made a lot of money when we played their arrangements of songs at restaurants last year.

I'm sure you mean Rodrigo y Gabriela.


To clarify, TS, I think you mean either latin music or music in Spanish. Spanish music means music from Spain.

I definitely recommend Rodrigo and Gabriela.

Mana, Enanitos Verdes, Aleks Syntec, kumbia kings. The Mexican has spoken
What are some of your first jam experiences with a band?
We all couldn't stay in time and I ended up killing 4 people and a bass player.

Look up Mercedes Sosa. She is the Bob Dylan of Argentina.

Serrat, La Oreja de van Gogh (I think); Sabina; David Bisbal, etc are all Spanish; although I think I'm missing some popular ones...

No that was France; the universal controversial guy from Spain is Di Stefano (hell I forgot where he was initially from)...


Anyways if TS means songs in spanish, and not just songs from Spain he lots of songs and genres to choose from; it's like asking "Give me good english songs".
He can have dance-able songs, rock, metal, ska, reggae, cumbia, pop, flamenco, milongas, whatever...


Although I lol when people give him obscure mexican black metal bands of sorts (like that one time with the band with a very long name)

Yeah that one
I remember there was one song that was like parasitonecrofagomortaldemexicoagudoyhepatico or something


Who the hell even listens to these guys? It's like listening to Stallagh, just in another language (hell if they even speak in their songs)

Heroes del Silencio is some pretty good Spanish rock. I just read an article about how there is interconnectedness between music and speech, maybe that's why Spanish music is so awesome. Total new and unfamiliar experience.
#32
They've already been mentioned, but one of my friends is pretty into Maná. These are the songs I remember liking of theirs:
Te Llevaré Al Cielo
Como un Perro Enloquecido
Oye Mi Amor
Ángel de Amor
Clavado en un Bar
Corazon Espinado
Justicia, Tierra, y Libertad

I like these Shakira songs too:
Ciega Sordomuda
Ojos Así
La Tortura

And since The Mars Volta were mentioned, there's this too:
Omar Rodriguez-Lopez - Deus Ex Machina

Check out Porter, a good psichaedelic-alternative rock band from 2005-2008. (They have some songs in english too)
#35
If you mean actual spanish music, you should check out Vicente Amigo. Its more flamenco fusion and is also quite jazzy.
#36
I'm also looking for spanish music but to you as samples for some production work. Need some with strong melody and lyrics, anyone have any ideas?
