Music Monday Latinx week
Music Monday, 9/19: Aloe Blacc, Christina Aquilera, Miguel, and Esperanza Spalding.

Music Monday, 9/19: Aloe Blacc, Christina Aquilera, Miguel, and Esperanza Spalding.

This week’s Music Monday celebrates the beginning of Latinx Heritage Month, which kicked off last Thursday. We celebrate influential Latinx artists like Ivy Queen, Mexican Institute of Sound, and El General, while also showing respect to artists with lesser known Latinx roots such as Aloe Blacc and Maxwell.

Panamanian-American artist Aloe Blacc, the master of the cover song, released his spin on Michael Jackson’s “Billie Jean” this summer. Watch the always-impeccably dressed Blacc and his string quartet create an incredible moment for a London audience as he breathes incredible new life into a modern classic.

Monterrey, Mexico’s indie pop quartet Quiero Club are part of the city’s “Happy fi” collective of artists and musicians. Check out “Teorias,” from the band’s new album, Oportunidad de Oro:

Mujercitas Terror is an indie rock group from Buenos Aires, Argentina. With tones of punk, indie, garage and noise, the band cites Nick Cave’s The Birthday Party, The Cramps, and The Jesus and Mary Chain as major influences. Fronted by bassist Daniela Zahra, Mujercitas Terror initially formed in 1999, but has had many lineup changes since. Their first album, Mujercitas Terror, was independently released in 2007. They have released three internationally acclaimed albums since and continue to make music.

Los Angeles rockers Chicano Batman continue to wow audiences. These guys rock and are some of the hardest-working, kindest men in the industry. Blending tropicalia, psychedelia, and 90’s slow jam vibes, Chicano Batman is truly a reflection of their personal histories and the culture around them.

After twenty-three years in the industry, Boricua rapper and reggaeton diva Ivy Queen proves that she is still a force to be reckoned with in her 2015 release, Vendetta. Having moved from Puerto Rico to NYC as a child, she returned to her homeland as soon as she turned eighteen, finding herself working with DJ Negro and quickly becoming a musical sensation. Feminist issues such as women’s empowerment and liberation, as well as other themes of love and relationships, are often at the forefront of Queen’s music. She made her acting debut in 2012 in a Spanish-language production of The Vagina Monologues in Orlando, Florida.
