The Latin Ballad

The Latin (or romantic) ballad is a Latin musical genre which originated in the 1960s. This ballad is very popular in Latin America and Spain, and is characterized by a sensitive rhythm. A descendant of the bolero, it has several variants (such as salsa and cumbia). Since the mid-20th century a number of artists have popularized the genre, such as Julio Iglesias, Luis Miguel, Enrique Iglesias and Cristian Castro. The world famous song “Historia De Amor” has been one of the most covered songs in Latin Music History, it has been covered by Pedro Infante, Julio Iglesias, Ana Gabriel and Edye Gorme. ” Hoy Tengo Ganas De Ti” has been covered by many artists, Ricardo Montaner and now most recently with Christina Aguilera.
