Karl Cameron "K.C." Porter crouches before the blinking 80-track SL 9000 recording console, body pulsating with the sounds: a strummed cuatro guitar, the muted strains of a piano montuno, clicking castanets, a fat, implied clave bumping from low drum hits. Porter eyes the engineer sitting nearby and grins. "Oye, pero tiene swing, Papa!" Porter exclaims. (Translation: Hey, this has swing, man.

After a three-decade career packed with critical acclaim and commercial landmarks, Carlos Santana might not have anything to prove. But you wouldn't know it from his first studio album in almost a decade. Santana's guitar soars throughout the vigorous "Supernatural" (due in stores Tuesday), stimulated by a host of young guest artists, from Wyclef Jean and Matchbox 20's Rob Thomas to Dave Matthews and producer K.C. Porter. All of them enhance the album in multiple and unexpected ways.

Whenever New York shopkeeper Shedeh Tanner and her family hear of someone traveling to Iran, they conspire to smuggle two highly illegal substances to her sister, who sells them secretly from her own store--things so disdained by the Iranian government that anyone caught with them can be fined, jailed or publicly whipped.

It's easy to get an opinion from Khaled, the Algerian singer-songwriter known as the "King of Rai." Ask a question and the words pour out, a tumble of ideas interspersed with his hearty laughter. All of which makes sense, since rai -- in addition to being the name of a hugely popular style of North African music -- is an Arabic word for "opinion."

It's not the first place mainstream American record scouts might look for the next English-language female folk-pop star. After all, the other big names in the genre lately have all come from chilly, English-speaking lands--Paula Cole from Massachusetts, Fiona Apple from New York, Sarah McLachlan from Canada, Jewel from Alaska. But sunny Guadalajara is where singer-songwriter Elan Sara DeFan, 16, was born and raised. And more than a couple of important people in the mainstream U.S.

He's only 23, but Ricky Martin titled his latest album "A medio vivir," which translates as "Halfway Through Life." Looking at his life up to now it's hard to blame him. A Latin American superstar at the age of 12 as a member of the teen-sensation bubblegum group Menudo, he's packed enough experiences into his young existence--good and bad--for someone twice his age. In the years since he left Menudo at 17, he's struggled to gain artistic credibility...

There were plenty of surprises at the Grammy Awards this year: Jenny's "dress." Sting's win over Ricky. Whitney's middle finger. But the seven Latin categories seemed uniquely plagued with shockers. To paraphrase several Latin music writers nationwide, this year's winners in the field were questionable at best. Particularly curious were Ruben Blades' win in Latin pop with a neoclassical work, and Tito Puente's victory over popular favorite Ibrahim Ferrer in traditional tropical.
