The Latin all-stars return with a few new members and a much wider playing field. While the 1998 debut focused on Tex-Mex music, Canto draws from Cuba and South America, too. The group’s anchors Cesar Rosas and David Hidalgo of Los Lobos are joined by the Mavericks’ barrel-chested singer Raul Malo, the velvety Brazilian Caetano Veloso, and the Peruvian enchantress Susana Baca. Several arrangements lean to the left, bringing to mind another Los Lobos side project, the Latin Playboys.
