Welcome to the Latin music WikiProject!
Project edit
Welcome! Bienvenidos! Bem-vindos! To WikiProject Latin music!
Several Wikipedians have formed this collaboration resource and group dedicated to improving Wikipedia's coverage of Latin music and the organization of information and articles on this topic. This page and its subpages contain their suggestions and various resources; it is hoped that this project will help to focus the efforts of other Wikipedians interested in the topic. If you would like to help, please join the project.
Goals edit
  1. To be involved in discussions and debates relating to "Latin music" including and not limited to:
    merges, citations, other references, image issues, splits, cleanup, formatting, and expansion.
  2. Reduce trivial information, speculation, point of view, and anything else that violates Wikipedia's core article policies.
  3. Bring numerous articles to Good Article, Featured Article, and/or Featured List status.
Scope edit
What is covered on the project

As the definition of Latin music can be broad, the following are narrowed down to what is included in the project.

Artists Artists, bands, and musicians that perform Spanish or Portuguese-speaking music (traditional or popular) from Latin America, Spain, or the United States are included in the project. The nationality of the artist or band does not matter so long as it meets the aforementioned criteria.

Geographical The geographical region inclusions of the project are Spanish and Portuguese-speaking regions of Latin American as well as Spain and to a smaller extent, Portugal. This also applies to Latin music in the United States.

Recordings:

  • Any Spanish or Portuguese-language album with at least 50% of its content in either language under a Latin music genre. Spanish or Portuguese versions of an album and crossover albums by non-Latin music artists are included as well.
  • Any song recorded in Spanish under a Latin music genre.
  • Spanish or Portuguese versions of a song recorded by a Latin music artist falls under the scope as well. This does not apply to Spanish or Portuguese covers of a song performed in another language (unless it is the only cover of a song and complies with WP:SONGCOVER) or Spanish or Portuguese versions of a song by non-Latin music artists.

Note that Portuguese-language recordings mainly applies to Brazilian music.

Tips
?. Use common sense. Ultimately, assume good faith on the part of others, be bold in editing because perfection is not required.
See Wikipedia:Editing policy for more information.

Before starting a new article! - Notability is a concern that must be adhered to. See Wikipedia:Notability (music) for more information.
Need help starting a new article? See Wikipedia:Article wizard it will help you through the process of submitting a new article to Wikipedia.

I. Use references. This is an encyclopedia, so remember to include a ==References== section listing websites, newspapers, articles, books and other sources you used to write the article. New articles and statements added to existing articles may be deleted if unreferenced or referenced poorly. See Wikipedia:Verifiability, Wikipedia:Cite_sources and Wikipedia:References for more information.
II. Use proper spelling and grammar. This is a very important aspect of an article. "We want to learn editors to write proper" There are helpful guidelines in regards to styles. See Wikipedia:Manual of Style (music) for more information.
III. Use footnotes. Take advantage of the footnote ability Wikipedia has, instead of including html links inside the context include them as footnotes. See Wikipedia:Footnotes on how to use them.
IV. Write a good lead. Be sure to write a lead that concisely summarizes the entire article into one or two paragraphs, which make sense to someone who may know nothing about the subjects in question. See Wikipedia:Lead section for more information.
V. Stay on topic. Many articles are criticized for length; sticking to the subject matter helps eliminate this. See Wikipedia:The perfect article for more information.
VI. Keep it simple. Remember that the average reader should be able to comprehend the erudition. Although you should use a broad vocabulary of regular, non-technical terms, do not provide such a quantity of locutions as to impel those who aspire to derive serviceable information from the article to consult a dictionary.
VII. Use images if possible. Images enhance articles greatly, but only use them when they are necessary, and ensure that their copyright status has been specified and we are allowed to use it on Wikipedia. See Wikipedia:Images
