About This Show
Radio Menea features music by Latinx, Latina and Latino artists, with a side of queer Latinx political analysis.

Listen in to discover new música, re-discover old jams, and hear anecdotes about life from all over Latin America and the diaspora.

Episode 41: Indigenous Artists
4 days ago
Thanksgiving? No creo. This week we're giving you a little antidote to some of the revisionist history that's popular at this time of year by bringing indigenous artists who are making music that emphasizes their roots: integrating indigenous languages, instrumentation, and cultural references. We hope that you'll hear evidence that the colonial project has failed - indigenous cultures today are alive despite it all, and this small sampling of dynamic and diverse bodies of work is a tiny taste of that lucha.
Featuring music by Dr. Sativo, M.C.H.e. & Tzutu Baktun Kan, Luzmila Carpio, Los Kjarkas, Los Nin, Mare Advertencia Lirika, A Tribe Called Red and Lido Pimienta.
