For those who have followed the trajectory of this Mexican singer, her new single "¿Qué Tiene?" is not just a foray into the most popular rhythms - Hip Hop / Trap - but a new daring lyric experience. According to the artist, the song promotes individual acceptance and "being as a whole."
It’s not the first time that we've mentioned Silvana Estrada in our column, but her music continues to surprise us with each release.

María Paz Ferreyra, better known as Miss Bolivia, is one of the most important exponents of the Argentine popular scene.

Rafael Meza, originally from Veracruz, has presented his individual work under the name of Pehuenche, where he reworks traditional Mexican genres such as bolero and son in a production that immortalizes the richness of Latino music. "Sin Tu Querer" is part of his debut EP under the title of "Vendaval."
After a long time experimenting with electronic music and the base of traditional Mexican genres, Centavrvs surprises us now with a much more driving production, but no less intricate and powerful. "El Punto Final" is a collaborative work with Tweety González (Soda Stereo) and trombonist Rey David Alejandre.
