Latin Roots #43 with Ernesto Lechner on Balada – Discover This Romantic Latin Style - September 19, 2013
It’s time for another Latin Roots today as Ernesto Lechner, co-host of The Latin Alternative radio show, is here to talk about a very romantic style of Latin music, balada. Ernesto will play us a couple of examples of the style starting in the late 1960’s when a lot of authentic balada drew from jazz and even bossa nova. We’ll also hear a modern rendition from Babasonicos from Argentina.
What we won’t hear is the 1980’s synth-drenched version of the form- Ernesto will explain why.
For more balada music listen to our Spotify playlist.
Latin Roots is made possible by a grant from The Wyncote Foundation.
