Enduring cultural and historical ties connect Florida with the countries of Latin America and the Caribbean. Nearly a quarter of Florida’s residents can trace their roots to either Spain or the Spanish-speaking nations of the Western Hemisphere. The influence of Latin musical styles on the music of Florida and the broader United States is one of the most significant indications of this cultural exchange.
