The disappearance of 43 students from a rural teaching college in Mexico on September 26 has unleashed not just protests on both sides of the border but powerful music as well. This week’s Beat Latino</strong> shares songs that commemorate the students and condemn the corruption and violence that caused their deaths, as well as songs from Latin America’s protest tradition.
