Nuestros artistas are amazing. It is a treat to hear how 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.
