Club Coco: Chicano Souls – Part 127.08.20
Coco Maria is a digger and selectora, specialising in Brazilian, South and Central American, Caribbean wax and irresistible slices of samba, jazz, charanga, cumbia, alongside all sorts of rarities from sunnier, far-off places. Mixed with her unconditioned energy, Coco will keep your feet busy while making your mind embark on a trip to the warmer side of the musical world.
This month, she presents music and stories from the other side of the controversial Mexico/USA border. This is music that identifies Mexican and Hispanic Americans and challenges the assumptions and stereotypes of what Latin music should be.
She is joined by people from the Chicano scene in California and Europe. Monica Robles “Moniloca” is a DJ from San Diego who hosts Lowrider Sundays on Dublab and is a resident DJ of Sleepwalking. James Pogson runs the labels Symphonical and Fantasy Love. Jay Ce Corp (Club Cliche) is a Northern soul collector based in Holland with a deep affection for Chicano Soul.Listen now
