This week’s Beat Latino explores songs from the past and present that speak to who we are.

How do we identify ourselves? Who tells our story? Where do we say we come from?

So, here’s a special selection from all over the Americas that sings about a few possibilities. We have expressed regional pride (Soy de Durango), sung of our immigrant status (Emigrante Latino), our mestizo heritage (Soy Mexicoamericano), our shared heritage with others (Soy latino) and much, much more.

And we end the show with a question – ¿Quíen Soy? Who am I?

Here’s to telling your own story, in words and songs of your own choice! And of course, dance all the while doing so!

Enjoy!
