This hour of Beat Latino goes to Africa! The rhythms of salsa, bachata and rumba from the Americas was born with a large dose of Africa, thanks to the presence of Africans in the Americas since the 1500’s. This edition of Beat Latino takes a listen to genres that then returned in the 20th century to become highly popular as well as transformed in many countries in that continent – the super dance beats of the Americas with a new African touch!
