Beat Latino with Catalina Maria Johnson

Nuestra música: past, present and future


Download this Episode of Beat Latino (MP3)

What an amazing month for Latinx music! The releases this month are spectacular, and go from super traditional to extremely radical without hardly skipping a beat. It’s an eclectic and unpredictable set of tunes, from a Blondie cover by Guatemala’s magnificent singer Gaby Moreno, to Costa Rica’s Las Robertas waves and waves of sunny SoCal-imbued vibes to hip hop by Residente featuring Niger’s Tuareg guitarist extraordinaire Bombino to classic chicha by Peru veteranos Los Wemblers. And that’s just the beginning….enjoy!
