Pass the Aux: October

Pass the Aux is a monthly series that highlights music created by women and gender expansive artists.

October is here and we're celebrating the last week of Latinx Heritage Month! Check out these 6 songs by latinx artists from all around the world.

1. Pi de Limón - ximena

ximena's sonic universe is vibrant, abrasive, and totally unique. The Peruvian producer was the first person to study Electronic Digital Instrument (EDI) at Berklee College of Music. We're so lucky to have ximena as one of our teaching artists at BBG Boston!

PERFECT FOR: raving in nature

FOR FANS OF: Daedelus, Caribou, Arca

2. La Conga - PAUZA, Alexander Abreu

Lush layers of percussion and a soaring trumpet solo. What's not to love? PAUZA, the first female electronic duo from Cuba, make it pretty impossible not to dance to this track.

PERFECT FOR: involuntary dancing

FOR FANS OF: Disclosure, Jayda G, Nicola Cruz

3. Estación Esperanza - Sofia Kourtesis

This song, like most of Sofia Kourtesis' discography, will make you want to dance, cry, and change the world all at the same time.

PERFECT FOR: dancing, crying, and/or changing the world

FOR FANS OF: Kelly Lee Owens, HAAi, Ela Minus

4. Quédate - MJ Nebreda

MJ Nebreda brings the party on "Quédate." Growing up in Caracas, London, and Santo Domingo, Nebreda brings a totally unique set of influences to her music.

PERFECT FOR: feeling wistful at the club

FOR FANS OF: Yaeji, Bad Bunny, Shygirl

5. Gurú - Paty B

Paty B teamed up with fellow Miami-based artist/producer Kuinvi to bring us this hyper-pop influenced bop. "Gurú" is off of Paty B's new album GOTEO.

PERFECT FOR: neon lights, night drive

FOR FANS OF: Kuinvi, Paloma Mami, Sassy 009

6. Te Quiero Olvidar - Salt Cathedral, Ximena Sariñana

Colombian electro-pop duo Salt Cathedral gift us with this rework of their song "Te Quiero Olvidar," this time with a Ximena Sariñana feature!

PERFECT FOR: starting a new chapter

FOR FANS OF: Sylvan Esso, Buscabulla, Bomba Estéreo
