Ani Cordero On Her Powerful New Album El Machete and Indie Music From Puerto Rico

Listen to this show:  Pop‑up player! | Add or read comments

Ani Cordero's Puerto Rican-American-Global music is politically charged and fun to dance to! Recent events provided plenty of raw material for her powerful new album El Machete. But they also inspired Ani to co-found PRIMA, a non-profit that supports independent music from Puerto Rico. Ani joins us ahead of her World Music Institute gig this Friday night December 6th at Bushwick's Sultan Room (Abraham Dorta opens; 7 pm doors, 8 pm show) to sample El Machete and to introduce some of the indie artists making waves in Puerto Rico.

hey does any DJ there at WFMU know that the archive player is not functioning? At least not for my Android
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:24pm Rob W:

I have sometimes had to restart my phone because of streaming issues with the app (although I use the iPhone app) so if it's not too much of a pain maybe try that. By the way I think I've heard that new versions of the apps are in the works although don't quote me on that...
