El Rock en Español y Portugués!

Five songs from Latin American rock bands (and one of their colonizing countries, *cough* Spain *cough*) that everyone needs to know. Because who says Latin@s can’t rock out!?

1. La Célula que explota by Caifanes

Nopales and Saul Hernandez’s hair blowing in the wind… perfect combination.


2. Lamento Boliviano by Enanitos Verdes

Enanitos Verdes offers this song as tribute to all the Indigenous peoples of Latin America.


3. Fiesta Pagana by Mago de Oz

Latin@s can rock out to anything… even to a flute and violin duet!


4. Até Quando Esperar by Plebe Rude

Plebe Rude shines light on the hope and resilience of working class Brazilians despite social struggles.


5. Baracunatana by Aterciopelados

Aterciopelados reinterprets Lisandro Meza’s original vallenato version of “Baracunatana” to challenge gender norms!
