Tuesday, 2:40 – 3:15 PM: Collaborations and Technologies: Pushing Latin to the Mainstream
First was 'Bailando” Enrique Iglesias, then "El perdón" with Nicky Jam, and then “Despacito.” Now, consumer demand for Latin music and the growth of streaming have pushed Latin music to the verge of mainstream. Over recent years, Latin music began to change musically and lyrically, becoming more urban and more universal. The genre has seen collaborations between more traditional artists and Latin Urban artists that are reaching greater audiences. Couple this new DIY infrastructure — highly innovative digital instruments and production tools, accessibility to cloud-based recording and mastering capabilities — with the fact that Latin America is by far the fastest growing music market in the world, and this year we will see the emergence of new global artists from Colombia, Mexico, Brazil and surrounding countries. Join us as we showcase a few examples of successful collaborations which helped artists rise to stardom in the Latin music market.
