This activity intended to familiarize its users with the history and development of Latin Jazz from an Americas perspective. The tutorial is designed to illustrate the movements and contributions amongst artists from the Americas Diaspora between 1900 to the present and the stylistic changes undergone by artists of different cultures and languages to produce hybrid forms of integrated music. Students will also be introduced to some areas of African and European history as a way of understanding roots of the music.
