Sorlyz Pagan, Kelvin Li, & Yamile Hernandez: We are going to discuss Latin music and the dances. We will be discussing the history and origin of the Latin genres and how throughout the years they have been more sexualized. Genres such as bachata, merengue, and salsa were all once seen as “barrio” music and were stigmatized by white upper class people because of their African roots.
