This week’s Beat Latino focuses on the beauty of our color brown, moreno skin, and the musical odes to  beautiful morenas to new anthems to the mixtures of international peoples from Puerto Rico, Colombia, Chile, Mexico and Spain. As Bomba Estéreo sings in their new anthem “Internacionales”: “Mezclados, somos todos mezclados, venimos de todos lados, la misma historia con otro sabor” (Mixed, we are all mixed, we come from everywhere, the same history with different flavors)”. Amen!
