Here are this week's notable new releases.
Mexican-American Lila Downs mixes native Mexican music with her own compositions and sensibilities. Singing in both Spanish and English, Shake Away
includes special guests Mercedes Sosa, Cafe Tacuba's Ruben Albarran and Raul Midon.
Music fans that love bachata love Toby Love. His sophmore album Love Is Back
deals with contemporary themes to which most young adults will be able to relate.
The CD of Solis' live concert came out a couple of months ago; now you can get the DVD and watch this amazing talent on the screen.
By the way, Solis will be touring this September, so check the Latin Music Concerts listings for dates and cities.
Another album from Mexico, this time rock en espagnol's Jaguares take the stage with their new studio album.
If you love Cuban timba, salsa, son and jazz, you'll love Maraca. This is his first album in 4 years so there should be a lot of new music for Maraca fans (of which I am one!).
If you thought disco was dead (and are sorry about it) this is the album for you. A dance party riot for those who like to shake their booty.
