"Baila, Baila, Baila"...Tamarindo's Music Episode!

On this special musical episode of Tamarindo, we have not one, but two very talented #WOC artists that are blending genres, while honoring their R & B roots to create some beautiful sounds. Before we get to our interviews with our special guests Abrina and Malia, we reflect on the #Urban Latinx music takeover that is fully entrenching itself in mainstream American culture at the moment. We also throw a few Latinx songs in the basura that we think are a little tooo played out. Let us know if you agree with us or what you would put in the basura instead! About our guests: Abrina (https://open.spotify.com/artist/3FfeeQuvoeef4F19qixt58?si=7UueoPVtQuKJ12soNgtWFA) is a singer-songwriter, originally from San Diego, who’s upcoming EP “Sunset Cliff” opens with a Latin trap single and is followed by nostalgic tracks that bring together the influences of SoCal R&B, Hip hop, and Latin music. Find her on all streaming platforms and on instagram: @abrinamusic (https://www.instagram.com/abrinamusic/) Malia (https://open.spotify.com/artist/5o6oaYrumOkkzsOmwZXJv6?si=rSDkragERYa962D6AyyqiQ) is an alternative soul/r&b singer, guitarist and songwriter. Her last project ‘Late Bloomer (https://open.spotify.com/album/1V2m2z2kQdL9TsJYjvlknA?si=HToGmiXsShS-u5X0TB0oOA) ’ has amassed millions of streams and has been featured on the Fox show “Star” with Queen Latifah and the upcoming ‘Truth be Told’ starring Octavia Spencer. She’s toured with Syd from The Internet and is a part of the artist collective Soulection. Her sounds are often called healing and her newest EP titled Ripe (https://open.spotify.com/album/3WdV5Ov5BEcIv7za8WUXBD?si=XSXRTh__RFO-Be1wtC76Fg) is one of her rawest and most soulful deliveries yet.

Discovering Your Energy Chupacabras and More About Stress!

El #Estres! On this episode of Tamarindo, Ana Sheila talks to us about what #stress is really. We learn why stress is not ALL bad but why it’s also more harmful than we think. Chronic stress is actually linked to the 6 leading causes of death. Many of the stressors our communities face like financial or familial stress are not ones we can easily change without policy changes but Ana Sheila walks us through some of the things we CAN do to start changing our relationship with stress like changing our #mindset and discovering our #energychupacabras so that we can keep doing impactful work for our communities. We include a technique used by the stress management company @Baskandbeing (https://www.instagram.com/baskandbeing/) . You can learn more about them here https://baskandbeing.com/ We also highlight Encantos (http://www.encantosmedia.com/) , a 100% Latinx owned education entertainment company for families.

We Belong! Mental Health Access in the Latinx Community

On this episode of Tamarindo, we talk about #therapy and how it can help when we experience #trauma, a timely conversation with recent events that have targeted the #LatinxCommunity. On August 3rd, the people of El Paso experienced one of the most harrowing attacks in recent history at the hands of a White supremacist that specifically targeted immigrants and Latinos. We pause to reflect on that tragedy and other recent policy changes that are adversely affecting our community. As we referenced, this article outlines (https://medium.com/@WeAreUnidosUS/the-shadow-war-to-reshape-the-face-of-america-7c540750e495) how the Trump Administration is deliberately attempting to change the face of America so it looks less....well...brown. At a time when folks in the White House want to tell our community that we don't belong, we know how important it can be to access mental health resources. As part of our commitment to our community's well being, we talk to the creator of the #LatinxTherapy p...

Reproductive Rights for All!

On this episode of Tamarindo, we talk about what is at stake when it comes to #reproductiverights if we don’t take action to stop the intentional work taking place to dismantle #RoevWade. We feature Danielle Perez (https://www.instagram.com/divadelux/) , stand-up comedian, writer, and actress who is leveraging her platform to protect #AbortionAccess.

Why #Latinx Representation is More Important Than Ever!

We asked Dr. Ana-Christina Ramon, co-author of the UCLA Hollywood Diversity Report, Director of Research & Civic Engagement, UCLA Social Sciences, what letter grade she would give Hollywood on their representation of Latinx characters and stories and surprise surprise, Hollywood flunked! She says it she would give Hollywood a D+. “Out of the top 8 roles in films and TV, 5 to 7 percent are portrayed by Latinx actors,” Dr. Ramon says. She goes on to say that “When 18 percent of the population is Latinx, this significant underrepresentation is inexcusable!” We agree with Dr. Ana-Christina Ramon, and so on this episode of Tamarindo, Ana Sheila and Brenda talk about why #Latinx representation is important and share examples of Latinx stories to celebrate and some that make us cringe. We are especially excited to drop this episode today when trailblazing STARZ Original Series VIDA is back for its second season! #VIDA is a show for the Latinx community and we know you’ll love it. We even heard a little bit about her experience as a writer on the show from Jennifer Castillo. We hope you enjoy this episode of Tamarindo and share it with a friend!
