Novos Baianos from Brazil, were awarded as the best album in Brazilian music history: "Acabou Chorare". A work rich in stories and legends.


Another great piece from Brazil is "Clube da Esquina", I also recommend checking out its story. I was revolutionary for Brazilian music at the time.


Finally "Artaud" by Pecado Rabioso, featuring the legend Luis Spinetta, this is considered the best Argentinian album ever. And among my all-time favorites as well.

I might as well start this off with a bang! Some high-octane 60's garage rock from Lima, Peru...



Los Saicos - Demolición (1965)

Here's another garage-rock favorite of mine. Los Doltons with their song about Robert "Birdman of Alcatraz" Stroud...

Ritchie Valens was one of the greatest in early Rock and Roll. His life was cut so short and there isn't much material left by him. However he did make it on the silver screen, and there is a biopic about him. I've seen it over two dozen times.

Ritchie Valens - Ooh My Head


Los Lobos - La Bamba


I watch a doc on Spanish Rock, and they didn't include Herb Alpert. Which I think is a shame. Even though he isn't Mexican, and he describes his band as "Four lasagnas, two bagels, and an American cheese." he did help popularize Mariachi music. When you think of it, Herb Alpert was a hit machine in the 60s on par with Motown and The Beatles and he did it was Mariachi music.


Herb Alpert & The Tijuana Brass - Spanish Flea


Martinez appears in the Alan Freed movie, "Rock Around the Clock." He might not be considered "Latin American Old Rock" but he was seen by Rock n Roll fans at the time. Tony did three songs for the move. I could only find one video: "Cuero."
Tony Martinez and His Band - Cuero


I can only describe this next song as Progressive Rock Exotica. Yma Sumac was billed as a Peruvian princess. There was a conspiracy theory that she was really Jewish, from Brooklyn and her real name was Amy Camus.

El Condor Pasa (Original) - YMA SUMAC (1971)

In 1969, Walo Carillo, the drummer for Los Holy's, left the group and helped to create another Peruvian rock group "Telegraph Avenue"...



Telegraph Avenue - Rocking' Rock (The Girls from Oklahoma)



And after leaving Telegraph Avenue, in the early 1970's, he went on to help create yet another Peruvian rock group "Tarkus"...



Tarkus - El Pirata (1972)
