Welcome to this week’s podcast!
We kick off celebrating the music of Johnny Pacheco, co-founder of the legendary Fania record label, whose vision and ear for what Latinos wanted to dance to in the 1970s created some of the iconic label best music.
If the Descarga isn’t enough to lift your lockdown blues, Amaranta talks to Dr. Rafael Santandreu, one of the world’s leading psychologists and author of the best-selling book “Shake it Off!’ about how to shake off anxiety, fear and other negative legacies of the pandemic.
Talk of neurosis inspires Jose Luis to find therapy in the world of Latin Rock, indulging in the nostalgia of youth with Argentina’s Gustavo Cerati, Brazil’s Os Palaramas, and Venezuela’s Desorden Publico
We talk to our film editor Corina Poore about this year’s outstanding Latin American films that have made it to this year’s BAFTA long list to finish with our choice of new UK and international music releases.
