A National TV Special will offer first look at Latino Hip-Hop, Reggaeton and Hurban Music. AIM Tell-A-Vision Group’s Maximas Productions, the award-winning producers from the groundbreaking series “American Latino TV” and “LatiNation,” announced their third season of “Sonidos,” the acclaimed Latin music special series, with the premiere of “Sonidos-Volume 9: Latinos in Hip-Hop” this month on English-language stations all across the United States.
This ninth volume of the quarterly one-hour specials offers insight into the exploding “Hurban” music genre. Hurban music eclectically mixes Latin Hip-Hop, Rap and Reggaeton.
Featured artists’ segments include: red-hot, West Coast Hip Hop brother act, Akwid; Miami sensation Pitbull; Milwaukee rappers Kinto Sol; R&B crooner, Frankie J; and more. Additionally, the multi-award-winning producers feature in-depth segments on the emergence of Latinos in Rap, as well as on the history of the Chicano Hip Hop movement and a rare and insightful look at the rising popularity of Hip-Hop and rap in Cuba.
“Sonidos” is hosted by Liza Quin, a talented vocal artist and songwriter whose recently released CD Single “Make Your Move” features Reggaeton pioneer El General.
