This week, Latin Pulse returns to culture and music in Latin America and the connections to social movements. This is the third in a series of programs looking at these cultural connections. This program looks closely at the roots of protest music originating in Argentina, Panama, and Brazil. The hosts of NPR's Alt.Latino podcast are back, sharing their expertise to discuss the music of Mercedes Sosa, Ruben Blades, and Chico Buarque. The news segment of the program includes a report on the Organization of American States' request for a hearing in the dispute between Ecuador's President Rafael Correa and his country's media.
