Fighting for Nicaragua Through Song: A Portrait of Carlos Mejía Godoy

On this special musical edition of Latino USA, Maria Martin shares the story of one of Nicaragua’s most celebrated musicians — singer-songwriter Carlos Mejía Godoy.
In the sixties and seventies, Carlos, along with his brother, Luis Enrique, composed the soundtrack for Nicaragua’s Sandinista revolution. And today, decades later, both are now working to preserve Nicaragua’s unique cultural traditions. Carlos explains how.

This program was produced and hosted by Latino USA’s producer María Martin.
