​This week’s Beat Latino is an exploration of Andean-rooted tunes that take the groove from the ancestral​ to the dance club! Check where the charanga and the pan pipe have gone in a thousand years or two – from Andean folk to Andean dub to Electrova to Andean bass and from Colombia to Chile to Argentina and beyond, it’s an all things Andino Beat Latino!
