Divas and Superstars (Episode #104)

KQED 9: Thu, Sep 29, 2011 -- 11:03 PM

Focuses on the Latin pop explosion of the turn of the century and the success of artists like Ricky Martin, Gloria Estefan and Shakira in the English-language market. As studios concentrate on star-driven pop, Latino youth gravitate toward urban fusions - Spanish rap and reggaeton, as well as rock en Espanol.
