Top 5 Hispanic artists you should be listening to this week
We are among those who believe that Latin American music has much more variety and more talent than what reaches popular lists - often led by reggaeton artists. AL DÍA gives room for all those voices and new proposals and brings them to you in your weekly Playlist.
This artist/activist, a native of Albacete (Spain), is the new female voice of the peninsular pop. Having been in stages since she was a child, she has more than three albums under her belt since she began her official career in 2012. "Vivir" is part of her collaboration with the iconic Spanish band Estopa, and it is her last single from 2018.
This quintet of young people promises to "conquer" the Mexican audience, resuming the tradition of Mexican music in a political moment in which stigma is stronger than culture. "No Te Pido Mucho" is their last release of 2017.
These two Colombian voices represent the new generation of Latin American alternative pop. "Hoy" is the launch of the solo career of Pedrina (before, Pedrina and Río), and sets the tone for what is expected in 2018 on the Colombian scene.
Another regional group that claims the border culture is Fuerza de Tijuana. Originally from Baja California, they have a large repertoire of corridos, and their lyrics tell the stories that nowadays become news from the White House.
If you didn’t know the "Math Rock", we introduced you to Vicente Gayo, a band from Ciudad Satélite (Mexico), which fuses electronic music with "circuit bending, punk aspects and DIY philosophy". "Mismo Loop" is part of their last production in a brief 6-year career.
