London’s Latin Music History Uncovered

By 12 April, 2012

La Linea 12 will soon be here with a feast of Latin music for all London folk over the latter half of April. The latest edition will mark the 12th year of the event which has become hugely important in London’s Latin music calendar. But what many may not know is that the Latin music scene started in London in the 40s and has seen many great names over the years, as this new storywheel (featuring photos and audio) illustrates.
