From cumbia to baile funk to Spanish trap, we hear from the artists making the Latinx sound reverberate around the globe.
On today’s show, we’re traveling all around the Spanish and Portuguese-speaking world, hearing sounds new and old from the Latin diaspora. This episode collects some of our favorite interviews over the last two years of the show. Salsa legend Eddie Palmieri joins in, as does Chilean rapper Ana Tijoux with Mexican singer-songwriter Lila Downs. From Spain, C. Tangana, Bad Gyal and producer El Guincho navigate the new landscape of trap en espanol, reggaeton and points beyond. Panamanian duo Los Rakas touch down from Oakland, California; club music producer extraordinaire Deltatron joins us from Lima, Peru to talk neoperreo and more; and Lisbon’s Branko walks us through zouk, kuduro, kizomba and other rhythms of the Lusophone world.
