Latin Roundup, September 2011
In this edition of the Latin Roundup, we get to touch on several corners of the vast and varied world of Latin music, thanks to the stellar collection of stylistically wide-ranging albums out in the last couple months. Norteño's "narco" kingpin Gerardo Ortiz dropped his first album since last winter's attacks on his entourage. Indie-pop darling Ximena Sariñana made good on the hype surrounding her debut with an even richer, more mature, more fun sophomore collection. And rock queen Alejandra Guzman recaps her illustrious career with a killer greatest-hits collection. So let's dig in.
