I stumbled across a wonderful Alt.Latino post on Jessy Bulbo, musician, cultural instigator, and all around riot grrrl. Her work is subversive, edgy, while paying homage to her Mexican roots. I love artists who can cherish the old, but not fall into the nostalgia trap to make new and refreshing commentary through music and performance.
I then realized that I don’t have much of a background on Latina artists. I can name J-Lo, Charo, and Gloria Estefan, but that’s about it. I know that there is a wealth of amazing Latina talent out there. So to my readers, who are you jamming to? Let me know!
