AllMusic Review by

The centerpiece of SOMOS AMERICANOS (WE ARE AMERICANS) is "Nuestro Himno," a Spanish-language version of "The Star-Spangled Banner" first released as a single in May 2006 as commentary on the immigration/border debate in the United States. Along with two remixes of the controversial single--which features Wyclef Jean, Carlos Ponce, and Ivy Queen--the album contains patriotic and politically charged songs by the Kumbia Kings, Yemaya, and other artists crossing the spectrum of Latin and Afro-Caribbean music.
