This week's Beat Latino focuses on new music, and it's a wonderful, magical ride with all sorts of grooves from hip hop from Costa Rica and Guatemala (Nakury, Rebecca Lane) to masterful weirdness from Colombia's Meridian Brothers, to surreal border ballads from The Chamanas to psychedelic surf rock cumbia from Thee Commons to... so much more! The selection of new music from this week's Beat Latino is a testament to how we as Latinx craft the most wonderful and varied musical identities, drawing from a nearly infinite wellspring of cultural resources. Enjoy!
