Americanos: Latino Life in the United States is an exciting, diverse collection reflecting the musical contributions of Latino-American culture. As a part of actor Edward James Olmos' Americanos project, which celebrates Latino-American writing, photography, and music, and includes a documentary on HBO, the album features a wide array of performers. Rubén Blades, Los Lobos, Marc Ribot, and War are just a few of the musicians contributing to this collection. From "Low Rider" to "America the Beautiful," Americanos praises the unique, eclectic spirit of Latino Americans.
