PRX's Afropop Worldwide Celebrates Hispanic Heritage Month 2023

Produced by Afropop Worldwide’s Executive Producer Sean Barlow in collaboration with Afropop Worldwide’s expert field producers—Ned Sublette, Marlon Bishop, and Alex Wolfe—we focus on the awesome music of the Afro-Latin world.

These songs are featured in Afropop Worldwide’s specially curated four-part selection of historically based programs designed to help stations—carrying and non-carrying—celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month (Sept. 15–Oct. 15) and some of the outstanding musical moments of the pan-Latin world, north and south of the border. Contact your PRX rep to pick up this series at no cost. Time’s a-wasting! Favorite Barackaism: “Si, se puede!” Si, como no?
