Beat Latino airs Sundays on Radio Arte ( and is archived on this website weekly. Beat Latino specials are also licensed all over the United States  through the Public Radio Exchange.

This special hour is all about L-O-V-E. Or A-M-O-R!

We Latinos love to sing about love! Included in this hour: Multiple Grammy-winner Juan Luis Guerra from the Dominican Republic does a merengue-croon about all the kinds of loves in our life, Spanish alt-flamenca Martirio belts out  a jazzy rendition of a song describing the feeling of love and Afroperuvian diva Susana Baca´s velvety voice lingers languidly in a lovely sung poem about the same topic. There´s also highly danceable tunes for the month of Love & Romance –  sizzling salsa  about the ABC´s of loving and Latin alternative group Kinky from Mexico rocking out to a tune about that feeling we call “love” – all this and more as we musically celebrate romance in February!
