Latin Roots #53 - Catalina Maria Johnson on Judeo-Iberian Music
It's time once again for Latin Roots, our ongoing series highlighting different genres of Latin music. Today Catalina Maria Johnson from Chicago Public Radio's Beat Latino joins us to discuss Judeo-Iberian music or Ladino. This music goes back over 500 years and represents a dying tradition and a dying language. As Catalina tells us in many way it's the music that is keeping the language alive, often in the form of lullabies.
