  1. I see that you make distinctions between two genres here, that is, corridos and banda, and even mention some sub-genres of banda, such as rancheras and cumbia, but I was hoping to see more than this.

    I have noticed that among the Spanish-speaking community here at ÁPB, there seems to be a disturbing lack of listeners of Spanish rock (artists such as Héroes del Silencio and La Quinta Estación) and metal (artists such as Mägo de Oz and A.N.I.M.A.L.). Even genres that do have an audience, such as hip-hop (artists like Pitbull and Calle 13) are not mentioned in the article.

    That said, I appreciate that the article abstains from using the term “paisa music”, which many people seem to assume is any and all music with Spanish lyrics.
