8. Jon Secada - 'Expressions'

Fans of Miami's Jon Secada might be surprised to hear his new album as Expressions is a Jazz album. If you're a fan of his Latin sound, this might not be the album for you but those who love his smooth voice should be in for a treat.

9. Sergio Vallin - 'Bendito Entre Las Mujeres'

Mana fans are already familiar with Sergio Vallin since he's at the heart of the band with his distinctive guitar. This album, though, is something a little different as Vallin provides guitar back-up to a cast of great female singers including Ana Torroja, Rosana, Joy Juerta (Jesse & Joy), Natalia Jimenez (La 5ta Estacion) and more.

10. Alex Cuba - 'Agua del Pozo'

Cuban soul rock is not something you hear much of but Canadian Alex Cuba delivers it with panache. Cuba is also the man fellow-Canadian Nelly Furtado turned to when she was faced with creating an Spanish-language album.

11. Big Pun - 'The Legacy - Best of Big Pun'

The first Latino hip hop artist to sell a million records, the South Bronx native was on the fast track when he suddenly was felled by a heart attack at the age of 29, just two months before the release of his second album, Yeeeah Baby. In tribute to the rapper, filmmaker Vlad Yudin directed a 93-minute documentary feature chronicling the rappers life; this album contains music from the film - some of the best of Big Pun's work.
