In 1980, the celebrated new wave band Blondie headed to Los Angeles to record a new album, and along with it, the cover "The Tide Is High" originally written by Jamaican legend John Holt. With percussion by Peruvian drummer and veteran L.A. session musician "Alex" Acuna and horns and violins that were pure L.A. mariachi by way of Mexico, "The Tide Is High" demonstrates just one example of the ways in which the music of Los Angeles and Latin America have been intertwined since the birth of the city in the 18th century. The Tide Was Always High gathers together essays, interviews, and analysis from leading academics, artists, journalists, and iconic Latin American musicians to explore the vibrant connections between Los Angeles and Latin America. Published in conjunction with the Getty's Pacific Standard Time LA/LA, the book shows how Latin American musicians and music have helped shape the city's culture, from Hollywood film sets to recording studios, from vaudeville theaters to Sunset Strip nightclubs, and from Carmen Miranda to Perez Prado and Juan Garcia Esquivel.
