It’s time for Beat Latino’s 5 DE MAYO celebration!

And we are celebrating on both sides of the border. This week’s selection is very recent (Copper Gamins, Lila Downs, Chicano Batman) and very classic music (Sones de México, El Palomo y el Gorrión, Los Tigres del Norte) from both sides of the Río Grande, México aquí y allá, and in several of our languages: ¡Spanish, English, Huichol, Purépecha! There’s also music for reflection on the issues that wound México as well as a call for hope for a the best future possible for México lindo y querido, beautiful and beloved México.

¡Viva México!
