New York-based Puerto Rican musician, songwriter, and activist Ani Cordero has toured as the drummer for the legendary Os Mutantes, and was a founding member of the celebrated Mexican rock band Pistolera. She's written love letters to a complicated world, addressing issues like immigration, Black Lives Matter, Feminism, and government corruption. Her latest record, El Machete, goes into subjects like colonialism, feminism, and the harsh reality of life in Puerto Rico after the devastation of Hurricane Maria. It's serious, but it’s also fun, as a lot of these political and issue-based songs ride along on a dance beat. Ani Cordero and her band play some of these songs, in-studio.
