Play It Again: Latin Bands Reinterpret The Classics

We've got some unexpected reinterpretations, led by the Colombian band Ondatropica as it pays homage to Nigerian legend Fela Kuti.  And, Las Cafeteras will play us a beautiful love ballad; the group is part of Southern California's growing Chicano movement, which is embracing Son Jarocho — the traditional music of Veracruz, Mexico — and using it to create political protest songs. We also play a new, much-anticipated track from Argentina's Juana Molina.
