This week’s Beat Latino is a “probadita”- just a taste of wonderful music in Portuguese from the lands that share cultural, historical and linguistic ancestors with us in Latin America and Europe. We share a sampler of music born in the waves of the Atlantic Ocean, as sailors far from family and Africans torn from their lands and loved one created music to soothe their souls; as well as delightful melodies for celebrations and gatherings. Samba from Brazil, Fado from Portugal, Semba from Angola, Morna from Cabo Verde and more in this week’s Beat Latino dedicated to our Familia Kreol.
