Recent releases highlight the amazing eclecticism of our music! There’s a myriad of beats we can claim as ours, from Lila Down‘s new visionary “Balas y Chocolate” inspired in the Day of the Dead, to the nuevo folk from Peru courtesy of Kanaku y el Tigre to experimental artist Mercedes Peón wailing and howling and adding electronica, Galician-style right along with Warsaw Village Band to Rana Santacruz’s latest, this week’s Beat Latino is a wild and wonderful paseo!
