    Me being a general fan of grindcore and indie rock before living in south america for 2 months, i never thought I would like this kind of stuff. Now that i have seen it in action in the Discos down there I am addicted.

    What are some of your favorite picks for good latin dancing/party music?

    Im a big fan of cumbia villera from Argentina. Villas are slum villages and cumbia villera is usually about the life inside of them. Its mainly made on cheap synthesizers that are worn like guitars, and its totally awesome for dancing, my favorite cumbia villera band are Los Pibes Chorros.


    Other honerable mentions in this genre are Re Piola and Damas Gratis.

    Also i have been digging the Dominican band, La Banda Gorda. Its really fast paced merengue/salsa, and their bass player shreds if you can find the song online download La Guerra Del Mambo by them.

    Other salsa bands i like are:
    Sonora Carruseles
    Puerto Rican Power Orchestra

    And from random other genres:
    Orchestra tropical Brasil (mambo)
    Bersuit Vergarabat (rock)

    Good stupid/funky songs:
    Daddy Yankee - Gasolina (reggaeton)
    Lorna - Papi Chulo
    Melodi - Toma que toma

    Post up what you like, or dislike in this area of music, I am sure Mammero will have some awesome suggestions.

    Bump for Rio Funk balls and the massive number of stabbings/face crushings involved.
