Download this Episode of Beat Latino (MP3)

Like everything else that’s important in Latin & Latino culture, nuestras madrecitas – our mothers – have a special niche in our music. There’s songs about a mother’s special love, leaving Mom to go elsewhere, returning to Mom and to one’s hometown, following Mom’s advice, and the consequences of not doing so!

Let’s celebrating Mother’s Day Beat Latino style, with lots of singing and dancing! This hour of Beat Latino presents songs from all over Latin America, and Spain as well as the southern and Western U.S.A. Hosted in both Spanish and English, so all can enjoy and move to the special beat of the Dia de la Madre.
