Download this Episode of Beat Latino (MP3)

This week’s Beat Latino delves deep into the new sounds of the supremely eclectic Latinx musical universe! It’s a wild and wonderful time for nuestra música , with cumbia-gone-rogue from Bay Area-style from Bang Data, afrobeat mambo gone-equally rogue from Oakland, Cali’s La Misa Negra, sunny crooning from Chilean-Mexican Adan Jodorowsky, magnificent pairings such as Lila Downs and Ana Tijoux (Mexico and France-Chile) and new Cuban-tinged Caribbean grooves from Tanga (Vancouver, Canada) and much more! The sounds are all over the map, in more ways than one! Enjoy!
