The AllMusic editors are recapping the year in recordings with well over a dozen posts in which they present their favorites within specific genres and styles. Right now, on the AllMusic Blog, they provide a list of their favorite Latin releases of 2010. While the charts were ruled by dance and pop from Aventura, Enrique Iglesias, Banda el Recodo, and Marc Anthony, we found more excellent material by digging underneath the unit-shifters to find throwback dance by Argentina's Banda de Turistas, a return to salsa for India, and the nearly unclassifiable Rubias del Norte, who throw everything from Bollywood to lounge into the mix.
