Corazon brings to the listeners a broad variety of Latin music. This is an opportunity for all Latin music lovers to immerse themselves in the sounds of Latin America and the Caribean.  Latin Lounge includes the simple rural conjunto, the sophisticated habaneras, Latin jazz, the rhythmic sounds of the Puerto Rican plenas, and the simple and moving Andean flute.

Latin music is very diverse, with the only truly unifying thread being the use of Latin-derived languages, predominantly the Spanish language and the Portuguese language spoken in Brazil.

 Camilo Lara a/k/a Instituto Mexicano de Sonido


…“Mexico” is Lara’s caustic commentary on what the country has become during the past six years of drug violence. “We’re living in a place that is almost at war, where all the people that are supposed to take care of your safety are working with the narco and the people that are causing the violence,” he said. “So I guess what I did with my song is I tried to do kind of a song that speaks from my point of view. I don’t have any agenda. I’m just a citizen that does music.”

Chavela Vargas (April 17, 1919 – August 5, 2012)

Chavela Vargas fue una de las artistas que con más éxito, sentimiento y orgullo llevó la cultura mexicana a todo el mundo.

Chavela Vargas, unsurpassed interpreter of the “ranchera” song, who shattered gender stereotypes and blazed a legendary path through 20th century Mexican popular culture, has died. Vargas died of multiple organ failure in Cuernavaca, Mexico days after returning from Spain, where she had been promoting a CD dedicated to Spanish poet Federico Garcia Lorca. Chavela Vargas experienced her first flush of fame in the mid-20th century, she enjoyed an intense resurgence in 1990s, with a rediscovery fueled by Spanish filmmaker Pedro Almodovar, who championed her music and included it in some of his films. It was Almodovar who possibly describes Vargas’ voice best by calling it “la voz aspera de la ternura” — the rough voice of tenderness.
