This week’s Beat Latino takes a paseo musical through the latest offerings in the alterlatino universe – it’s a beautiful selection of tunes that go from deep roots music, to retro bolero sounds to avant-garde electronica – check out the jarocho-influenced sounds of Radio Jarocho from New York City and Las Cafeteras from California, the amazing songstress Guatemalan Gaby Moreno belting out a smoldering torch tune, Bomba Estéreo’s latest fusion of Colombian beats and electronica powered by Li Saumet’s vocals, and more!
