Me parece genial si se escribe en castellano; no hay menor problema. Ahora DigitalDreamDoor es una página en inglés para un público internacional y por eso se publican las listas con titulos en inglés. Yo creo que podremos usar ambos lenguajes sin mayor complicación.

Saludos!

Sergio Mendes was not considered as part of "Brazilian rock artists" because Tropicalia, Bossa Nova and MPB are not included. But it doesn't mean that is not important part of Popular Contemporary Music, not even in Brazil.

i know this character's been long banned, but, for what it's worth... "latin rock" =/= "samba rock".
latin rock is just a silly term that refers to rock music with spanish lyrics, whereas samba rock is a term that refers to a musical style.

"Latin rock" could be a silly term but represents something.

About Jorge Ben...

In Brazil, it used to differ between "Brazilian rock" and "MPB" (Brazilian Popular music)

Jorge Ben is the kind of artist that is difficult to give a label but when I talked with brazilian people consulting about it, they consider more as a "MPB artist" than a "Brazilian rock" artist. But if you check the list of Brazilian albums, he appears several times because it's definitively one of the most important artist of contemporary brazilian music.
