Various Artists

Putumayo World Music

For those new to contemporary Latin music, this collection of upbeat, radio-friendly tunes are the perfect introduction.

Full of traditional rhythms, horns, and percussion, the disc takes an interesting turn three songs in. Spain's Bebe demonstrates one of Latin music's newer diversions: dreamy dance oriented pop. It's easy to listen to and fun to drift away with. Cuba's Orishas offers some street credibility with a mild thump swagger and some smooth Spanish language raps.

Los Pinguos (USA/Argentina) hint at the Latin alternative sound and more specifically, the distinct shuffle beat and vocal approach made famous by Juanes. Coincidentally, part of the proceeds from this disc will be donated to help the victims of landmines in Colombia.
