This week’s Beat Latino sends love and energy to Colombia in the hopes for peace, with an hour of songs dedicated to the end of violence. From Colombia’s own Aterciopelados and their Pipa de Paz to Joe Arroyo’s La Guerra de los Callados to Che Sudaka’s La Guerra, we’ve been singing about giving peace a chance for a long time – here’s to the never-ending hope for an end to all violence!
