Middle Eastern and Latino Pop Music

  1. Feb 14, 2006 #1
    Ok, I don't know if anyone else here likes this sort of thing.
    I'm getting into Middle Eastern and Latino pop/flamenco music because both genres have a beat. (I don't know Arabic, Turkish, Farsi, or Spanish...but the singers just seem more passionate about what they are singing) Anyone here listen to this sort of thing and have reccomendations for artists I might like? I mean, I know about Shakira and other mainstream Latino artists...but stuff that seems to be lesser known in the whitebread population where I live has a much better beat!
    Lately what I've been listening to has been : Alabina, Los Ninos de Sara, Tarkan, Bellydance Superstars 2 &3, and a reggaeton CD that I picked up on impluse because I didn't know what it was.

    I maybe a lil biased since i live in an arabic country (lebanon).
    But i tend to agree with you , spanish and latino music just fascinate me.
    on the other hand i have 2 songs on my playsit i don't remember from where i got them but they are for 2 israely singers , well i adore them.
    I can give you a site to go to to download some songs , but you wouldn't know what to search for unless you can give me a hint of what kind of arabic songs you like...

    On this one CD I have there is a song called "Lawn Oyounak" by Nancy Ajram, then there is a couple on songs by Issam Houshan that I like. Other artists on the CD are Shereen, Pentaphobe, Mohammed Mohie, Saad El Soghayar, Hakim, Amani, Hamada Hilal....
    I really like the Tarkan CD that I have if you know who he is. There are a couple of dance tracks on it that are neat, and the ballads are great too.
    As for what I like stuff with a lot of rhythm that makes you feel energized. I hope that helped. And by the way, thanks for your help.

    Thank you so much! That is a really good website, I've run across it before but never really explored it totally in depth. I'll be downloading for awhile now. :)

    I'm not sure, they are a pretty large and famous group. Been playing since the 80's at least.
