PRX’s Afropop Worldwide is helping stations celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month 2023 (Sept. 15-Oct. 15) with a specially curated selection of four episodes. They spotlight: party-happy cumbia from Colombia and the pan-Latin world; bugalú (or “Latin soul”) a music style that stormed New York City in 1966; bachata which began as a kind of workingman’s blues from the Dominican Republic before exploding as an international sensation; and profiles of the legendary Beny Moré (Cuba) and Ismael Rivera (Puerto Rico) who are both national treasures. Si, se puede!
