This week’s Beat Latino spends an hour with nuestra música protesta from the decade to which we are saying “good-bye”—all over Latin America, we seem to have found a new voice, on the streets and in the music. Whether tackling immigration themes or allying with #BlackLivesMatter or decrying corruption, our musicians added their musical grain of sand to movements, and raised their voices loud and proud. Enjoy this good-bye to a decade of music for the people, of the people!
