Two-Step Into the New Year Happy 2019! If you're a long-time listener, you might know we have a tradition of doing a special show around New Year's, full of our favorite music stories of the year. Today, a selection of music pieces, including several that have not been previously aired on the podcast. We begin with the dreamy nostalgia pop of Cuco, then move on to a Los Angeles remake of a Peruvian chicha classic, "Cariñito." Mexican rapper Niña Dioz shares how she navigates a male-dominated music industry, and Grammy award-winning salsa legend Eddie Palmieri gets personal in a one-on-one conversation with Maria Hinojosa.
