This chapter reconstructs, through oral history and personal networks observed in study, the brief history of Latino musicians in Charlotte. While other Latin music scenes have emerged in U.S. cities, Charlotte is notable for the diversity of the musical styles being performed there and the intense debates musicians are having about the future of Latino culture. Relying on scholarship on music and cultural studies, the chapter also examines the threads connecting U.S., southern, and Latin American music(s) together up to the early twenty-first century. It outlines the bands that are the focus of this book and describes their musical style.
