Transcript of Latin Rock
History of Latin Rock, Part 1
The first time when Latin Rock became popular in the US was in 1958 when the artist Ritchie Valens wrote his song "La Bamba".
Also, around that time in Latin America, due to issues such as politics and violent uprisings, many Latin American governments opposed the expression of opinions to the public.
Due to this opposition, many people began staging concerts and other exhibits of public opinion in secret.
In 1984, Latin Rock was officially recognized by the Mexican government. Soon, many other nations lifted the Latin Rock ban.
