This week! The last two teams representing the CONCACAF gang is Argentina and Brasil! We'll hear electrocumbia from our friends at ZZK records in Buenos Aires, some Brasilian samba and a wonderful Futbol/summer mix by our own JuampaSoul! Thursday at 7pm on KRVS Public Media
La Vellonera, a translation for "The Jukebox" used in many Latin-American countries, brings listeners a diverse selection from varied Latin genres, countries, and artists. The program has one sole purpose, to bridge the gap between the Latino and local communities. We have so much in common, and our music is hard evidence!
This week we celebrate those 10 Latin (American) countries who are proudly represented in this year's 2014 FIFA World Cup. The cinderella stories like Costa Rica, the powerhouses like Brazil, Mexico and Argentina, Colombia, Honduras, Ecuador, Chile, Uruguay, and USA in there, why not?
Tune in for a summer course-paced tour of Latin music from these ten cultural gold mines. Thursday at 7PM CST on KRVS Public Media.
This week on the show: Tom Zé, old Cuban sextetos, old timey Puerto Rican mountain music, accordion vallenata music from Colombia, female singers from Colombia and Mexico... And a surprise from Kenya. Thursday at 7pm CST.
