This week’s Beat Latino is all about dangerous women and their music: las peligrosas – Fierce, wonderful artists and the vital music they create. From Cuban electronica to Mexican rancheras to Argentinean surf rock to Chilean hip hop, here’s a set of tunes by women and for women about changing up the world in a myriad of ways. Fighting the Patriarchy one song at a time!
And here’s a piece featuring an interview with Lila Downs, describing her newest music – which we also feature in this week’s Beat Latino.
