Episode 44: Intentions

Feliz añooooo!!!! We celebrated, we ate our uvas, and now we’re back and tryna be better cada día, so we made a few intentions for 2018. From commitments to having bomb-ass sex to cultivating a bit of lightness, we think our list is pretty solid. You won’t find any bullshit diet industrial complex resolutions here – though you will maybe hear one Zumba-related intention (but only because Zumba is joy!). Y claro, songs to go along with each intention – because in the end we are who we are.

Featuring music by Ozuna & Cardi B, Luis Fonsi & Demi Lovato, Karol G & Bad Bunny, Huey Dunbar, Mon Laferte, and Yotuel & Julca Brothers.

Episode 41: Indigenous Artists

Thanksgiving? No creo. This week we’re giving you a little antidote to some of the revisionist history that’s popular at this time of year by bringing indigenous artists who are making music that emphasizes their roots, integrating indigenous languages, instrumentation, and cultural references. We hope that you’ll hear evidence that the colonial project has failed – indigenous cultures today are alive despite it all, and this small sampling of dynamic and diverse bodies of work is a tiny taste of that lucha.

Featuring music by Dr. Sativo, M.C.H.e. & Tzutu Baktun Kan, Luzmila Carpio, Los Kjarkas, Los Nin, Mare Advertencia Lirika, A Tribe Called Red and Lido Pimienta.

Meneito 6: Dancing or Dominoes?

This week we start with a sad song, transition into a discussion of the various dancing (or non-dancing!) traditions in our families and our relationships to music, and end with a chat on the problematic ways spiritual traditions get used and appropriated. How are we like this even? We got mad good música for you tho – como siempre!

Featuring music by Tito Nieves, Wiki, and Yerba Buena ft Orishas.
