Warm beats to say “hello” to Springtime! This week’s Beat Latino explores the new grooves and sounds from releases in March and April, with a wide and wonderful selection of fascinating new visions. This includes the latest from intense fadista Ana Moura and Venezuela’s alt-pop rockers Los Amigos Invisibles, to conguero Pedrito Martinez’ take on a flamenco-tinged rumba in a homage to Camarón de la Isla, to Peruvian psychedelic cumbia from the 70’s made anew with Chicha Libre, not to mention a lo-fi version of a classic by Mexico’s Copper Gamins. Enjoy!
