What instruments are used in Latin Pop?

Most Latin pop music is heavily influenced by American pop and, therefore, uses many of the same instrument. The voice is typically most prominent, but other instruments include guitar, bass, drums and keyboard. The keyboard will sometimes play sampled instruments such as strings or horns in addition to piano and synthesizer. One member of the typical Latin pop ensemble that marks the style is the multi-percussionist. Traditional Latin music uses many different percussion instruments each played by a different person, but these duties usually fall of one person in Latin pop groups. The multi-percussionist is usally responsible for playing instruments as diverse as: congas, bongos, timbales, mark tree (wind chimes), shekere, shakers, maracas, suspended cymbals, udu drums, talking drums, tambourine and many, many other instruments.
