The Brooklyn-based hosts and partystarters step up for the premiere of our new series connecting the dots in Latinx music culture.
Every month, Uproot Andy and Riobamba will take you on a ride through the diverse and ever-evolving underground music of Latin America, the Caribbean and the diaspora, live from our NYC studios. On this very first broadcast, your hosts take a look at Latin trap, the massive sound that combines the vibe of Atlanta hip-hop with Spanish-language rhymes and a reggaetón sensibility. They also present selections of the sounds we can expect to hear as the series develops: reggaetón, dembow, baile funk, plena, champeta and many more. As always, your hosts will bring you the latest heat over the course of the show, including Uproot Andy and Riobamba’s brand-new collaborative track made specially for this first broadcast.
