The very names of Latin music genres suggest an irresistible, unmistakable rhythm. Salsa. Mambo. Rumba. Cha-cha-chá. And through the decades, these distinctive musical styles have continually—and profoundly—influenced American popular music. American Sabor: Latinos in U.S. Popular Music tells the fascinating story of that impact; Latino musicians helped shape many traditional genres of music in the United States, including jazz, R&B, rock ’n’ roll, and hip hop. With beautifully designed bilingual text panels, striking graphics and films, listening stations, and musical instruments, the show celebrates the true flavor, or “sabor,” of Latin music in five major centers of Latino popular music production in the years after World War II – Los Angeles, New York City, San Antonio, and San Francisco. Sponsored by Ford Motor Company Fund and traveled by SITES, American Sabor: Latinos in U.S. Popular Music was developed by EMP Museum and the University of Washington.
