Latin music covers of non-Spanish/Portuguese songs[edit]

@Jaespinoza:, @DivaKnockouts:, @Hahc21:, @Luisnh1210:, I've been struggling on how the scope of the project should handle Spanish/Portuguese covers of songs of another language. Examples include Ahora Te Puedes Marchar, Desde El Día Que Te Fuiste, No Me Ames, Vivir Mi Vida, Sólo En Ti, Toda La Vida. Popular songs, but not originally recorded in Spanish. I don't have a problem with covers when it's usually the only one, but it's when there's multiple covers I don't know how to deal with it. You have bachata covers of Stand by Me (song), I Just Can't Stop Loving You, and so forth, where it's covered by multitude of other artists. @Victor Lopes:, I'm sure there are popular Portuguese-covers of non-Portuguese songs in Brazil as well, so I would like your opinion on the matter too since you're the only member that I know of who is active with Brazilian music articles. So you what do guys think? Any limits on how Spanish/Portuguese covers should be handled or should any cover of either language be included? Erick (talk) 18:16, 26 May 2014 (UTC)

Forgive me, Erick, I think I didn't get the central point. What do you mean with "how should this project handle Spanish/Portuguese covers of songs"? Are you referring to articles on Spanish/Portuguese covers or songs that already have articles of their own? Victão Lopes Fala! 02:23, 29 May 2014 (UTC)
Ah, my apologies for not clarifying, I meant the latter (songs that already have articles of their own). Erick (talk) 02:25, 30 May 2014 (UTC)

Leaflet For Wikiproject Latin Music At Wikimania 2014[edit]

Hi all,

My name is Adi Khajuria and I am helping out with Wikimania 2014 in London.

One of our initiatives is to create leaflets to increase the discoverability of various wikimedia projects, and showcase the breadth of activity within wikimedia. Any kind of project can have a physical paper leaflet designed - for free - as a tool to help recruit new contributors. These leaflets will be printed at Wikimania 2014, and the designs can be re-used in the future at other events and locations.

This is particularly aimed at highlighting less discoverable but successful projects, e.g:

• Active Wikiprojects: Wikiproject Medicine, WikiProject Video Games, Wikiproject Film

• Tech projects/Tools, which may be looking for either users or developers.

• Less known major projects: Wikinews, Wikidata, Wikivoyage, etc.

• Wiki Loves Parliaments, Wiki Loves Monuments, Wiki Loves ____

• Wikimedia thematic organisations, Wikiwomen’s Collaborative, The Signpost

I have expanded dab at Éxitos, and there is a related RM at Talk:15 Éxitos. Cheers. In ictu oculi (talk) 02:58, 17 June 2014 (UTC)

Okay that's now been moved to Talk:15 Éxitos (Alejandra Guzmán album), and the 15 Éxitos broken out into a separate dab. In ictu oculi (talk) 12:52, 5 July 2014 (UTC)


Are latin american bands that make Rock in Spanish part of this project? And genres such as Tango? I was invited to this project, but I would like to clarify that detail, to avoid misunderstandings. Cambalachero (talk) 02:45, 27 August 2014 (UTC)

@Cambalachero: Yes, Rock en Español bands (that includes the ones from Spain as well) are within the project scope. A rule of thumb I tend to use are the Latin Grammys and they have awards for Rock/Alternative music. Erick (talk) 02:56, 27 August 2014 (UTC)
