This week's Beat Latino spends time with a special kind of Cuban music, both within and outside of the island -- songs inspired by the Yoruban Orishas, the saints-spirits-deities that intercede between humans and the divine and who are invoked and honored by song, dance and drumming. Beat Latino shares a selection of songs that reference this beautiful and musical spirituality transplanted from Africa to the Americas, created by musicians from Miami to Havana and beyond in the Caribbean. Enjoy!
