Spanish/Latin American repertoire

Hello everybody!!
 
I am starting up a Latin(a)/Chican(a) choir at my university and I was wondering if anybody had any suggestions of any songs/composers that have Latin America influence, or Spanish words in them. 
 
~Thank you!!!

There's TONS of great stuff on earthsongs website, and you can hear the pieces, and they have CDs.  I've used much of it over time.   Also Third Planet Music.  Lots of choral music from Venezuela, Argentina, etc.

Will you be doing any SSA repertoire?  If so, take a look at my "Victor, Catarina," on the villancico by Sor Juana Ines de la Cruz, published by Walton: http://www.halleonard.com/product/viewproduct.do?itemid=8501538&lid=477&seriesfeature=&menuid=1323&subsiteid=32&;

Here's a recent performance of it on youtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6kTT70BYR0A

Please check out Violeta Parra's great folk anthem Gracias a la vida. I have recently published it for SATB and SSAA voices. Visit www.rhythmictrident.com for information. Thank you. Willi Zwozdesky
