Latin rhythms and exotic inspirations

Latin-American rhythms have always been an inspirational source for classical composers. These rhythms represent a rediscovery into the traditional Latin folk music, which was also heavily explored by many European composers who were fascinated by the exotic elements from the “new world”.  Several classical pieces have been composed where one can find rhythms originating from Latin dances inspired by Tango, Rumba or Habanera.
