Classics For KidsThis month, Classics for Kids features Spanish and Latin American Composers.
This week's show is Mexican Composers

In the 16th century, "conquistadores" – soldiers from Spain – sailed to Mexico, and took over the country from the Indigenous people who lived there. The Spanish brought their language, their religion, and their music to the place they called "Nueva España," or New Spain. Mexico became independent from Spain in the 19th century, but the music stayed, combined with African and Indigenous forms, and took on a life of its own.
