Here’s another look at what the BAMM.tv team are listening to right now. This week, we asked BAMM Latino producer Sonia to share her current recommendations …
1. No Quise Mirar (Déjenme llorar, 2012) – Carla Morrison
The first time I heard this artist I wasn’t very into the tone of her voice, but after listening to a couple of songs, I realized that the tone only emphasized, for me, the melancholic nature of her music. This song, in particular, I enjoy because the lyrics speak about the moment of loss where we realize that things were falling apart but we were refusing to open our eyes, and see reality.
2. Love Created I (Challenges, 2008) – Tarrus Riley
I have many questions about religion and this song states very simply one of the many points I feel: “Don’t tell me, I was born in sin and shaped in inequity when love created I.” Also, I love that the inspiration for this songs come from words of Marcus Garvey.
3. Yo aprendí (Polvo de la Humedad, 2012) – Danay Suarez
Elegant clarity on a difficult issue. Cuban rappers are on the frontier of expressing social and political issues.
4. Resumen de los 90 (Haciendo Historia, 2009) – Habana D’ Primera
The first time I heard this song, there was no way I could ignore the power of the “new” band. Here was a new flavor but winning me over by having a song praising and quoting all the songs that make me miss my times back home.
5. Sina (Ao Vivo no Morro, 2009) – Grupo Revelacao
This is a cover but I dig this version a lot.
