As bilingual, bicultural beings on both sides of our borders (and both sides of the pond), nuestra música is being created in English as well as en español. Beat Latino this week shares a selection of recent tunes and grooves from the Latinx diaspora, with beats from cumbia to pop to psychedelic surf rock to hip hop to electronica: we claim it all! Enjoy!
