World Views: Sources of International News, Latin American Music (Aug 01, 2011)
Zach Messitte, Joshua Landis, and Suzette Grillot meet for a conversation on the best sources for international news online for information junkies in the United States. We also wish Suzette the best of luck as she joins us for the final time before she departs for a year as the faculty-in-residence at the University of Oklahoma’s campus in Arezzo, Italy.

Three ethnomusicologists from Texas join the program for a conversation about how music defies borders in Latin America. Cathy Ragland is the author of Musica Norteña: Mexican Migrants Creating a Nation Between Nations, and a professor at the University of Texas-Pan American about 20 miles north of the U.S./Mexico border. She’s joined by UT-Austin professor Joshua Tucker, an expert in Peruvian chicha music, and Southern Methodist University music historian Jesus Ramos. His research focuses on Latin American colonialism and music in early modern religious culture.

Music heard on today's program:
"Vivan Los Mojados" - Los Tigres del Norte
"Los Demonios de Corocochay" - La Chichera
"El Condor Pasa (If I Could)" - Simon & Garfunkel
"Guacharaca Scratch" - El Gran Silencio
