Latin Music Week panels
This week, Billboard unveiled some of the panels to take place at the 2021 Latin Music Week returning to Miami from September 20-24. Cuban artist/activist Yotuel Romero, Puerto Rican star Kany García and ChocQuibTown members (and husband and wife) Goyo and Tostao will be part of “My Cause, My Music: A Conversation on Social Justice,” where they will discuss the role of artists in social justice movements and the advantages and pitfalls their involvement presents in their respective careers. Puerto Rican sensation Lunay, known for bops like “Soltera,” “La Cama” and the Anitta-assisted "Todo o Nada,” will join longtime producers Chris Jedi and Gaby Music to form part of “Making the Hit, Live,” a masterclass where Latin Music Week attendees can see how they craft a song in real-time. And Corridos tumbados artist Natanael Cano, sibling duo Los Dos Carnales and Mexican singer-songwriter Carin Leon will be part of "Regional No More – Mexican Music Goes Global,” a conversation on the globalization of regional Mexican music. The panel will be moderated by Jimmy Humilde, founder and CEO of indie label Rancho Humilde. For registration and more information, visit www.billboardlatinmusicweek.com.
