What a month of May for new music! There’s a Lou Reed-Ruben Blades-Making Movies tune (yes, really! Panamá, presente!) immigration allegory, edgy nuevo bolero-ballads from Puerto Rico’s Ile, smooth, smart bachata from Dominican Republic’s Vicente Garcia, Andean folk-electronica from Barda and Celeste Gomez Machado—something for everyone! Because nuestra música is as magical, varied wondrous as the multiple legacies, movements, roots and histories that have nurtured it through the centuries, exploding onto the 21st Century. Enjoy!
