Our Rhythms, Our Voices is a musical project honoring the Latin American population in the United States. For the project, we interviewed Latin American immigrants from all walks of life to create songs, using rhythms from their native lands. Part oral history/part roots music experimentation, the project and the music aim to celebrate Latin American immigrants in their diversity, cultural heritage, and contributions to this country and beyond. Photographs by Alejandro Alanis, lyrics by Yahir Durán, and music by Javier Jara.
