Well this week’s #BeatLatino is one wild, wild ride! It’s new music that goes from roots Venezuelan criollo folk to Peruvian electronica to Latino USA hybrids to cello-led experimental classical from Philly to Toronto’s Cuban-driven salsa to Cuban rumba plus tap dance as percussion from New York City to…whew! There’s more! But we’ll let you listen, move, sway, dance, jump, tap and enjoy it all for yourselves. Time to explore the far, far reaches of the Latin and Latino musical universe!
