About Latin Roots
The Latin Roots Live! concert series is inspired by Latin Roots, the bi-weekly radio series on World Cafe® hosted by David Dye, which explores the vast variety of music from Spanish-speaking countries and people, from cumbia, mambo and son to Latin rock, reggaeton, and more. Latin Roots on World Cafe is made possible by the Wyncote Foundation. Latin Roots Live! is produced in partnership with Afrotaino and Raices Culturales and made possible by the William Penn Foundation.
Latin Roots #52 - A Trippy Start To The New Year With Latin Psychedelia
For our first Latin Roots of the new year Catalina Maris Johnson, the host of Latin Beat in Chicago, is back to explore Latin Psychedelia. Or, as she indicates it is sometimes less colorfully called, neo-tropical, jungle cumbia. The music comes from Peru and elsewhere in South America and you may be surprised to hear she has some examples from back-in-the-day to go with some more contemporary ones. A trippy segment! Check out her Spotify playlist for more.
