Listen to THESE Hispanic/Latine Artists this Month!

if you don’t you’re anti-Hispanic /j

September 15th to October 15th mark this year’s Hispanic Heritage Month, a month to celebrate all those Latine and Hispanic, as well as their cultures. However, just because this month is specifically laid out to celebrate Hispanic heritage, that respect and celebration of our cultures should be year-round. To start, let’s look into some of the best up-and-coming (or already majorly winning) Latine and Hispanic artists that you can add to your playlists to celebrate these people on the regular.


El conejo malo

Bad Bunny

This is a man who really needs no introduction, but for those who may not know, Bad Bunny is a rapper, singer, and songwriter from Puerto Rico, and he’s a Pisces. Through his work and intense success these past few years, he’s been paving the way for other Latine and Hispanic artists. He refuses to be anyone but himself, preaching the importance of self-love, individuality, and having a good time. With the Billboard Music Awards in March of this year, he won Top Latin Artist of the Year and did his speech entirely in Spanish, feeling that he shouldn’t have to change for the sake of American audiences only. The definition of an icon.

She also won a Grammy for her feature on Kaytranada’s “10%” for best Dance Recording.

A band from Caracas, Venezuela, who then moved to Mexico to continue their career. They could be called “underground” if we really want to go there, and they have got a special and experimental sound that should not be missed. They combine elements of rock, indie, and fest into one, creating an addicting sound you never want to stop listening to. Their latest album came out in March of last year, named Dimensión Caribe.
