"Soy Luna" is bubble gum pop music from the TV series of the same name. I've only watched it marginally when my 5 yr old granddaughter has it on. From what I can tell, it's aimed at "tween" (pre-adolescent) girls. It's an Argentine telenovela produced by Disney Channel Latin America. The show is about Luna, "a girl who lives with her family in Canc˙n, Mexico. She goes to school, has her own group of friends, and loves to skate. However, her life changes when her parents are given a job offer that will move them to Buenos Aires, Argentina."

Here's a sample, the opening theme song:

I hadn't heard of Los Caligaris, so I looked them up. They are an Argentine band which formed in 1997, their genre being a mix of rock, ska, cuarteto and reggae. Their name comes from the legend of a clown named Caligari, and they often carry out circus routines on stage.

Here's a video from a concert in Mexico in July 2012:

I hadn't heard of Morat, either. They are a Colombian "folk pop" group (essentially a "boy band") which started in 2015, and I find I rather like them! Maybe it's the banjo and all the "vochitos" (VW Bugs) on a country road.

Residente, Soy Luna, Caligaris, Morat, Father John Misty, Emmanuel y Mijaris ...
Father John Misty (Josh Tillman) is from the U.S. so I'm skipping him. Here's the Wikipedia link if you want to see more about him. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Josh_Tillman

"Emmanuel" and "Mijares" are both Mexican pop artists, Emmanuel since the 1970's, Mijares (Manuel Mijares) since the 1980's. Mijares was actually a background singer for Emmanuel in the early 1980's before launching a solo career in the mid-80's. Recently they apparently have been doing a "Tour de Amigos" together.

Here is a song by Mijares, "Bella":

Emmanuel is known for his romantic ballads. Here is one of his songs from 1980, which takes me back to Costa Rica Christmas 1980/New Year's 1981 when it was played frequently and especially good for slow dancing... 'Nuf said.

Residente, Soy Luna, Caligaris, Morat, Father John Misty, Emmanuel y Mijaris, Enjambre ...
Enjambre (which means "swarm" in English, as in swarm of bees), is a Mexican "Rock en Espa˝ol" band from Zacatecas, although they actually formed their band when living in Santa Ana, CA. The bio on their official website says their music is influenced by punk, rock, grunge, seasoned with melodies from ballads. Their first album was released in 2004.

Residente, Soy Luna, Caligaris, Morat, Father John Misty, Emmanuel y Mijaris, Enjambre, Shawn Mendes ...
OK, Shawn Mendes isn't Latin American, either, but I'm not skipping him because he's from Toronto! His father is Portuguese, his mother English.

The son of my close friends (from Colombia) went to high school with him. His story is quite interesting. I'd heard about him and how his career was launched from my teenagers. From Wikipedia: "Mendes learned to play guitar by watching YouTube tutorial videos at the age of 13 in 2012. Less than a year later he started posting cover videos on the popular social video app Vine in 2013 and gained millions of views and followers in a few months, becoming well known for his six-second snippets of renditions of many popular songs. By August 2014, he was the third most-followed musician on Vine. Artist manager Andrew Gertler discovered Mendes online in November 2013, bringing him to Island Records in January 2014. He officially signed in May 2014 and released his first single "Life of the Party" on June 26, 2014. He became the youngest to debut in the top 25 on the US Billboard Hot 100, making it to number 24 for the week ending July 12, 2014."

This video is shot in the city I love, Toronto:

I guess I did get through your whole list today.

Mario Bautista is a 21 yr old Mexican pop singer. Here's one of his videos, "Ven a Bailar" (Come Dance):

Well that is quite a collection of differing music styles. I guess Banamex is trying to appeal to just about everyone in their offerings. I think I'd only be comfortable in maybe a couple of concerts from that group.

As I receive these emails I'll try and remember to post the names here.

I like Toronto as well. My best friend in college married a girl from Belleville (great fishing) and we passed through Toronto quite a bit. Later in life I worked for a large US computer company and they sent me to Toronto occasionally. I remember one beautiful spring Friday afternoon where the whole city (it seemed) shutdown early and everyone walked in the streets to go to a baseball game.

At first I was thinking, "okay, she's got great rhythm on the maracas... that's a good foundation for musicianship"; and then changed instruments! Gosh, she's cuter than the flowers around her & in her hair - and I noticed that she hardly ever looked at her instruments while playing!!

I noticed it was recorded 6 years ago (31 March 2010), so she's between 11 & 12 yrs old now... how come we haven't heard more from her on one of the international talent shows?? I bet it won't be long!
