While there are tons of fantastic Latin American artists, some acts are just better than others. This list is designed to let the fans of Latin American music separate the absolute best Latino bands and artists from all of the rest. Latin American music includes all singer and performers who are from Latin American countries. Often singing in Spanish and drawing from the many genres associated with South and Central America, there is a huge diversity of styles in Latin American music. Selena and Shakira are classic examples of the Latin singers, but are they the top Latin American music artists of all time? 

This list of the top Latin American bands in the world includes all Hispanic and Latino musicians who have released recordings that have gotten distribution, and is an up-to-date list. These are truly the greatest Latin American bands of all time, since the most famous Latin American music artists ever are listed, and the order is decided by actual fans of the best Latin American music.

Famous Hispanic singers like Ricky Martin and Jennifer Lopez are included on this list. Upvote the best artists to see them rise closer to the top of the list. The best artists on this list are the ones with the most votes, so show musicians like Nelly Furtado and Enrique Iglesias some love. All important, significant and iconic names in Latin American music music history deserve your votes, so make sure to choose wisely. You can only vote once on this list.

The list includes all new Latin American music groups, and if there are any missing on the list, you can always add them yourself. These are the best examples of Latin American music, as well as a good place to start if you want to listen to more Hispanic singers. The Latino and Latina singers who are at the top of the list will be the best choices if you're looking to listen to good Latin American music. No point in listening to them if they aren't actually good or even half-way decent Latin American music bands.

This list answers the questions "who are the best Latin American bands of all time?" and "who is the greatest Latin American singer ever?" It can even provide a good answer for the question "Who are famous Spanish singers?"

Whether you’re a Latin American music aficionado or a newer fan, please vote for the best Latin American artists - not just the most popular Latin American music singers that you never actually listened to.
