Coming up, an hour of music in Ladino on #BeatLatino on #Vocalo! Yes, that’s right LaDino, not Latino, but there’s a 500 year-old connection between the two, and shares the power of music as a powerful tool to keep a culture alive. 

This week’s selection for Beat Latino highlights contemporary music as well as pieces over 500 years old, beautiful, complex melodies which have kept alive the romance language of Ladino, language of the Iberian Jews expulsed in 1492 from their homeland Sefarad. From Ladino folk songs to Sephardic Jazz to Ladino Rock, this hour of Beat Latino features unforgettable music from an unforgotten land. Tune in!

This week, #BeatLatino shares new Latino music from around the globe- whether in Colombia, San Francisco, Brooklyn or Cuba,
Nuestros artistas continue to amaze us as they explore what it means to musically express our shared cultural legacy—Ani Cordero revisits Latin American music from the XX century that marked  social and political transitionsñ Cuban Alfredo Rodriguez takes on a classic tango giving it a jazzy new dress; London-based Cineplexx spins dreamy soundscapes, including one tune with fellow-Argentinean Natalia Clavier's help, Austin-based songstress Gina Chavez brings on the nu-cumbia en inglés. It’s an indefinable, indescribable, always surprising hour of sounds - just like us.
Tune at 1pm on Vocalo.org and enjoy!

Tune in today at 1PM CST! #beatlatino goes to #SXSW2014!
#SXSW may have gone too corporate and Lady Gaga for some, but for me the 5 day music-avaganza is still a one-of-a-kind  opportunity to discover and savor indie sounds of every kind and beat from all over Latin America, the Latino U.S.A. and Spain as well as Brazil. 
I was especially impressed with the chicas of our music, and gave them a special focus on Beat Latino’s weekly column in Hoy (Tribune Media, en español)
ENJOY!

There would simply not be Latin music as we know it without the gift of music from Africa, and this week’s #BeatLatino celebrates #Black HistoryMonth with a special selection of songs. I chose songs that are not only by Afrolatin@ artists, but speak to the experience of being black and latino itself.
Music from Perú, Uruguay, Mexico, Cuba and more, starting with the poem read by musician, poet and writer Nicomedes Santa Cruz that we use as the title - “Ritmos Negros" (Black Rhythms).

So, let’s musically think about that all, and not forget to dance while we do!

Sharing some of my favorite Christmas music with you, right now!!!
Tune in!
There just seems to be no end of songs we create about Christmas, whether it’s the celebrating and other traditions, or the month of December, or just our unique stamp on the classics.
There’s a little bit of all of that and more, in this year’s Beat Latino Navidad special. So, sit back and let the music transport you to new places for the holidays…Whether it’s the soaring, smoky voice of Guatemala’s Gaby Moreno in an austere and elegant version of the Little Drummer Boy, the soulful twang of David Garza’s guitar in a rich, textured version of Silent Night, Puerto Rican cuatro masters such as Yomo Toro or even a rockabilly rockin’ Christmas tune from Argentina - there’s something for all kinds of celebrations. Here’s wishing you a wonderful holiday season!
Don’t forget to use the “suggestions” tab on the home page to let me know what your Christmas favorites are!
I look forward to hearing from you!
