This week’s Beat Latino is inspired by the the two-volume “Guides to Birdsong” coordinated by El Búho (aka Robin Perkins) in which the calls and songs of endangered or threatened birds are the inspiration for a series of compositions by a who’s who of electronic producers from the Americas. Whether inspired by actually birdsong or the way these seminal fellow singers and music-makers on this planet soar and fly in freedom or their singular beauty, this week’s Beat Latino is truly for the birds. Spread your wings and fly and enjoy!
