Let's not mix Spanish with Latin. Shakira doesn't count as Spanish music.
I obviusly love Spanish music, because I'm Spanish and we've had many great composers. In classical music, for example, El Amor Brujo (Danza Ritual Del Fuego) by Manuel de Falla is one of the most famous Spanish compositions and one of the best ones ever imo:

But for me, the musical piece that would represent Spanish music is Entre Dos Aguas, by the famous Flamenco guitarist Paco de Lucía, one of my favourite musicians, he also collaborated with other great guitarists: Al Di Meola and John McLaughlin. Entre Dos Aguas is an intrumental piece, composed by De Lucía and recorded in 1973. It's a great piece, please listen to it if you really want to get familiar with Spanish music, I don't know if others have already recommended it, cause the thread is too long but I'm gonna post it, anyway:

Spain lived under a strong dictatorship from 1939 to 1975, so it took a very long time for music like pop and rock to develop. However, there was a very popular band from the 60s called Los Bravos, I didn't even know they were Spanish because they sang in English, they were probably Spain's most internationally famous band of the moment. They had a very successful hit named Black Is Black which they had to record in England because of Spain's conservative ideology of that time:

Spain's pop music reached its highlight in the 80s with pop bands like Mecano, which had a lot of success in European countries like France or Italy. They had some catchy tunes, I don't like most of their things, but I can't think of any other better Spanish pop musicians from that time:

I don't like much of Spanish rock music, but there was a band that mixed flamenco with rock music, they had good melodies, they weren't Spain's most famous rock band, but I think this song, for example, is really great, it's not flamenco, in fact is more of a pop-rock sad song:

Hallo Gernot und ebenfalls schönen Sonntag

On May 9th, Soraya posted a goodbye letter to her fans on her website. She ended with a line from Almost/Casi: “When the only sound that breaks the silence is your beating heart, in between the pounding you will find who you are …”

"I know there are many questions without answers and that hope doesn't leave with me, and above all, that my mission does not end with my physical story," were Soraya's last words to her fans and the media before her death.

Thanks for this. Loved Paco de Lucia.

My boyfriend is Spanish (from Bcn) so I am being introduced to some Spanish music, mostly pre-1990, but it's difficult I think to find something interesting that is reasonably contemporary (aside from obviously Rosalía).

I like John Talabot, who is from Barcelona (electronic music).

I also like this song from Love of lesbian:
