2012 was a great year for nuestra música, but especially for the ladies! We are sad to have lost the extraordinary talents of Jenni Rivera, la Gran Señora, but we start with her song, “Ovarios” and in this week’s Beat Latino share our favorite power chicas and their 2012 releases – from Guatemala’s Gaby Moreno, to the aptly named Zuzuka Poderosa from Brazil to Marisoul in California to Luz Mendoza from Portland, Oregon and many more… here’s to the fierce and wonderful music of Latinas that rock our world!
