For more: http://www.pbs.org/latinmusicusa From Latin jazz and mambo to salsa, Tejano, Chicano rock, Latin pop and reggaeton, LATIN MUSIC USA tells the story of the rise of new American music forged from powerful Latin roots and reveals the often overlooked influence of Latin music on jazz, hip hop, rhythm and blues and rock 'n' roll — and on all of American culture. Its a fresh take on America's musical history, reaching across time and across musical genres to embrace the exciting hybrid sounds created by Latinos, musical fusions that have deeply enriched popular music in the U.S. over more than five decades. Jimmy Smits narrates. Premieres October 12 and 19, 2009, 9:00-11:00 p.m. ET on PBS LATIN MUSIC USA will also air on V-me, the national Spanish TV network, on Tuesdays October 13 and 20 at 10 p.m. ET.
