This week’s Beat Latino invites us to reflect musically on the terrible effects of guns, weapons, bullets and violence on our society. There’s also songs in favor of peace from all over our Latino and Latin American musical universe. All of this is offered with great hopes for harmony and peace in the near future — we’ve been singing about violence and bullets too long!
