Music Monday, 9/26: Xenia Rubinos, Arcangel, Selena, and Zach De La Rocha.

Music Monday, 9/26: Xenia Rubinos, Arcangel, Selena and Zach De La Rocha.

This week’s Music Monday is another mix of incredible music from Latinx artists across the Americas. The mix starts off with Colombian artists Bomba Estereo and Esteman, then moves into Afro-Latin artist (and Oakland local) Shelia E., and Mexican electronic artist Panoptic Orchestra to start the mix and your week off with vibrant, danceable tunes.

Bomba Estereo’s “Soy Yo” is a celebration of little brown girls everywhere. The star of the song’s video is undaunted by awkward (yet awesome) adolescent fashions, judgemental girls and other hazards of growing up in New York. If you need something to start your week off right, this song is it.

“Really, there is a lot of bullying and lots of discrimination — both racial and social — so the message was a good one: To encourage people to be who they are and to be happy with themselves without being exactly what society tells you to be,” lead singer Li Saumet told Remezcla in an interview. “I love that she’s a little girl, and that shows off this side about women — how women can love and value themselves with all of their flaws, since society can be especially harsh toward them.”

The mix goes darker with self-identified “Cholo-Goth” duo Prayers from San Diego, and Costa Rica’s hard-rocking all-female band, Colornoise. From there, we move to the most recent release from veteran alt-rocker and activist Zach De La Rocha, best known for his work with Rage Against The Machine.

Award-winning Mexican indie rockers Hello Seahorse! are back with “Algún Día (Alicia),”  from the 2016 release, Entretanto. With a beautiful track about love and death, Hello Seahorse! proves once again that its music transcends language and international borders.

Born in Colombia but raised in Virginia, Kali Uchis makes incredibly catchy, danceable tunes. Influenced by ’60s girl groups, doo-wop, reggae and early ’90s hip-hop and R&B, Uchis makes earworms that will be your soundtrack for weeks to come. As a bonus, the woman has incredible style and is a joy to watch. Hellooooo, #StyleCrush!
