The music of Nicaragua is influenced by Mexico, Peru, Cuba, and the United States. Nicaragua has local musicians who play music that's a fusion of rap and pop music in Spanish. There are also new bands bringing a new era and feel of music.
One peculiar thing about Nicaragua's music is that the 80s and 90s songs from the United States are popular. Nicaraguans love the oldies music, which makes you feel like you're going back in time. The most popular radio stations are those that play oldies music like the songs of Air Supply and Kool & the Gang. When you turn on your radio in Granada, you'll go back to the 80s right away.
