Revolution Soul

Next stop for Miami's Latin underground: Hope

As big-name producers adjust to this multirhythmic revolution, two guerrilla young women, Liz Easton and Tanya Bravo, have launched an indie offensive with their new record label Soulas, producing artists such as Colombian rocker Nacho. Given the influences of his buddies in the Latin Funk Festival crowd, this Hardy Boy-haired artist is bound to become a pan-American version of Juanes when his CD is released next year.

These days, when my friends in Madrid ask me how I deal with a city as deceptively plastic as Miami, I tell them of the expanding Latin underground and sum it up with a sound byte Chao dubbed off Madrid's metro system and used as the title of his 2001 album Próxima Estación, Esperanza: Next stop, Hope.
