The selection for Beat Latino this week 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 El Beat Latino features unforgettable music from an unforgotten land.
