      Sometimes is difficult to tell where Spanish music stops and Latin American music starts. Many Latin American songs and rhythms are a continuation of, or inspired by, Spanish folk and sacred music. In the same manner, some of the most popular Spanish melodies, such as “Granada” and “Malagueña,” were actually written by Latin American composers.
