This week’s Beat Latino is an exploration of the many ways we have identified ourselves musically- as Latinos, as americanos, as more than americanos,  as wind, light and of course, as music. ¡Música somos! From Colombia to California, and Spain to Chile, the answer to ¿Quiénes somos? Who are we? is varied and beautiful. Yes, somos Latinos and this is our music! Enjoy!
