It's time once again for Latin Roots, our ongoing series highlighting different genres of Latin music. Today Catalina Maria Johnson from Chicago Public Radio's Beat Latino joins us to discuss Judeo-Iberian music or Ladino. This music goes back over 500 years and represents a dying tradition and a dying language. As Catalina tells us in many way it's the music that is keeping the language alive, often in the form of lullabies.
