Episode 85: Argentina

Esta semana, we take a deep dive into the music of Argentina — with an accidental yet very welcome focus on las mujeres! Our friend/favorite Argentine and former Alt.Latino co-host Jasmine Garsd is our special invitada and guest DJ. From tango, to cumbia, to tropical punk, Jas brings us un poco de todo. Join us to learn about literature recommendations to pair with each musical selection (!!!), the growing role of feminism in Argentine society, and exactly how we all feel about horror in literature and film (spoiler alert: nos da mucho miedo).

Featuring music by Tita Merello, Kumbia Queers, Juana Molina, Miss Bolivia, J Mena Baron, Paula Maffia, and Sofia Rei.

Things we talked about:
