in Latin[ish] by

In this episode of Latin[ish], Hector chats with MANO’s music editor, Sandra Treviño. Sandra is a music journalist and radio host in Chicago, where you can hear her on Friday afternoons on 91.1FM Vocalo and every second and fourth Monday at 6 PM CST on 105.5FM Lumpen Radio. Sandra is also one half of the deadly female selecta duo The Ponderers. Follow her on Twitter at @sandratrevino and on Instagram at @sandstrevino.

Hector and Sandra chat about the passing of DMX, the music of Bad Bunny, Iván el Satánico making kumbia obscura down in Querétaro City during the pandemic, what made Rigo Tovar so great, and the general state of Latin music.

Hector is the editor of MANO. He's also the host of Latinish and Hits from the Brain. A Chicagoan living in Las Vegas, he's a former deputy editor of Latino Rebels, as well as a former managing editor of Gozamos, an art-activism site based in his home town. He has contributed to RedEye, a Tribune-owned daily geared toward millennials. His work has been mentioned by The New Yorker, TIME and other outlets, and his writing was featured in Ricanstruction, a comic book anthology whose proceeds went toward recovery efforts in Puerto Rico. Hector studied history (for some reason) at the University of Illinois-Chicago, where his focus was on ethnic relations in the United States.
