This week’s musical journey on Beat Latino through the new releases includes Cuban changüi from Los Angeles, new music from another one of Austin’s prolific and uber-talented Adrian Quesada with the Echocentrics and southwestern desert rock, and even more Austin goodies with Money Chicha, which features members of the Grammy-award winning Latin orchestra Grupo Fantasma and its offshoot funk outfit Brownout performing  sounds inspired by Peru and Colombia. For the quieter part of the our paseo, check the lovely jazz tune to Mozambique by Cuba’s Harold-Lopez Nussa or the re-imagined boleros of Frankie Reyes (aka Gifted and Blessed). There’s never a lack of wondrous grooves in the Beat Latino universe!
