iLe: Songs Against Power
Music as an antidote to indifference.
Puerto Rican singer iLe knows all about what a melody and a lyric can achieve. She experienced it in her beginnings with Calle 13 and in her solo career, as well as when participating in the protests in Puerto Rico in 2019. Colonialism, feminism and abuses of power are some of the topics covered in this interview originally published in El hilo, a podcast co-produced by Radio Ambulante Estudios that every Friday puts into context the most relevant news events in Latin America.
