Rock on en Español
by Judy Cantor-Navas | May 23, 2013
Spanish-language artists have been rocking for more than half a century, and today no one can deny that Latin America and Spain incubate as much rock music as English-language lands. While rock en español has become ever more international, its limited commercial appeal in the United States can still make it seem like an underground movement. Ladies and gentlemen: Say hola to this recent music from some of the most notable bandas de rock. Among them, La Vida Boheme explodes from Caracas with songs that bleed with their country's social strife; veterans Los Enanitos Verdes and Draco Rosa score more hits; Argentine singer Fernanda Ulibarri covers Gustavo Cerati's "Cancion Animal" and Mexican alt rock gods Café Tacvba stage a comeback.
