Episode 60: Live with Bembona

We are SO! HYPE! to bring you our very first live taping! Last weekend we had the pleasure of interviewing Puerto Rican-Panamanian DJ, multi-platform artist, and activist Bembona at the New Latin Wave festival. Born & raised in Brooklyn, NY, Bembona’s work bridges the gap between POC communities, generations, activist work & beyond. She goes deep on Afrolatinidad and the artists who have inspired her work and her life. MIL GRACIAS to everyone who showed up and out for this event – lxs queremos muchísimo!

Featuring music by Celia Cruz, Ismael Rivera, Chocquibtown, Los Rakas, Tego Calderón, and Caribefunk.

Don’t forget to follow Bembona on Instagram and Twitter!
