Hispanic American Rock Culture: A Hidden History of Rock Music

  • Chase Public 1569 Chase Avenue Cincinnati, OH, 45223 United States (map)

Chase Public is proud to host an exploration of Rock and Roll in Hispanic American culture, led and organized by Giovanni Bello.

Almost all the general guides of Rock music somehow manage to elude the Rock culture in Spanish speaking countries. The influence played by North American mass media in Hispanic cities is enormous, and Rock music, as part of it, developed a unique history in those places. In this brief talk, Bello is going to share musical excerpts of some of the most interesting bands of that history. 

If you want to take a look at some of the songs, these are the links:
1. Los Saicos – Demolición -
2. Los Destellos – Guajira sicodélica -
3. Os Mutantes – Bat macumba -
4. Spinetta (Pescado Rabioso) – La sed verdadera -
5. Wara – Altiplano -
6. Patricio Rey y sus Redonditos de Ricota – Preso en mi ciudad -

12. Mano Negra – Peligro -
