Latin Roots

Latin Roots (68)

David Dye Latin Roots is a bi-weekly series on the World Cafe program, hosted by David Dye, and made possible by the Wyncote Foundation. In this new series, David Dye explores the vast variety of music from Spanish-speaking countries and people. From the standards like cumbia, mambo and son to Latin rock and even reggaeton, we'll hear it all.

The series airs every other Thursday during the second hour of the World Cafe program, and will delve into the musical styles and genres of Spanish influence with a rotating series of guests. With each segment, David Dye and his guest will explore two related songs, current and old, and discuss their unique characteristics, how they relate and where they fit into the spectrum of Latin music.

Quirky, Percussive, Witty South London Three-Piece Beaty Hearts are our World Cafe: Next

June 6, 2014 - Today the three piece band from South London called Beaty Heart are our World Cafe: Next artist. This is quirky, irreverent, percussive and even complicated rock. Most of all there is a lot of fun in the tropical vibe you might hear today. It is catchy as hell and reminds us a wee bit of Vampire Weekend. As usual we will play you 2 songs that you can download in our World Cafe: Next podcast.
