Beat Latino with Catalina Maria Johnson

Nuestra música: past, present and future


Download this Episode of Beat Latino (MP3)

There’s a recent trend to create music in both Spanish and English (even when the artist has primarily sung in one or the other) that we find fascinating, so here’s a Beat Latino hour dedicated to how artists use language/s in the music. How about you? Do you feel yourself drifting into one or another, mixing, dreaming in both, thinking in both or how do your languages play in to the crafting of identity? Beat Latino has some music samples, example and answers to that question for you as well as comments by Jessica Hernández and the Deltas.
