T​his week's Beat Latino shares songs about Mamá Africa, celebrating Black History Month and the gifts from African music to the Americas. ​From Perú to Costa Rica to Cuba to Colombia, and back and forth across the Atlantic Ocean, melodies and rhythms were born that are a testament to the living, vibrant presence of Africa in the Americas. Enjoy!
