Listen To My Voice! - The Beat Podcast with Jorge Santana and Malo

Jorge Santana is Carlos Santana's brother, but he's a good musician in his own rite. As a member of Malo, the Latin Rock band who wrote such hits as "Suavecito" and "Nena," Santana got his own shine while working to define Latin Rock on a parallel plain opposite his big bro. I got a chance to talk with Jorge Santana, who was really nice and opened up about his music and his brother's influence. You can download an mp3 of the podcast here.

Arcelio Garcia was the lead singer of Malo. His butter-smooth vocals laced the Chicano classic "Suavecito" as well as the majority the band's music. He is pretty up front about the band's influence in Latin Rock. I talked with him, and you can download the MP3 here.
