Razorcake Podcast #499 with Yvonne Drazan, The Left Side Of Latin – “Latin Fusion”

Art by FloraRae Tapia

On this edition of The Left Side Of Latin I will be talking about all of the artists who have taken traditional Latin rhythms and put their own spin on it.  I’ll run through some examples of artists from all over Latin America that took a cumbia, ranchera, tango and other Latin musical influences to make a sound that is all their own.  I’ll be featuring artists such as Café Tacuba, Ozomatli, Bajo Fodo Tango Club and newcomers like El Freaky.  Enjoy!
