“NEOYORQUINOS,” A SPOTIFY ORIGINAL PODCAST IN SPANISH EXPLORES NEW YORK THROUGH THE EYES OF LOCAL LATIN AMERICAN ARTISTS

This new podcast elevates the voices of diverse Latin American artists that share their unique stories of surviving and thriving in New York.

You love it, you hate it, that’s New York.”

— Alea, Colombian singer-songwriter.

NEW YORK, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, November 10, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — What does it mean for a Latin American artist to live in New York? How does this city influence their art and life? In "Neoyorquinos" [“New Yorkers”], the new Spanish-language Spotify original podcast, Latin American artists, creatives and romantics share their stories and unique experiences of letdowns and celebrations, of passion and determination needed to stay and thrive in New York. The first season of the podcast, produced by ViceVersa Magazine and Timeline Digital, is now available for free on Spotify.

“We wanted to bring to light the artistic contributions of Latin American immigrants and perhaps inspire others who aspire to come to New York. These stories expand our narratives and allow listeners to imagine a more complex and nuanced experience,” says Flavia Romani, director and co-creator of Neoyorquinos. “The podcast is also written, directed, produced, edited, and hosted by a woman-led, all Latino team.”

In eight episodes, Neoyorquinos elevates the voices of audacious Latin American artists with diverse backgrounds, ages, and birthplaces, from Colombia and Venezuela to Chile and Mexico. Their stories of grit and determination that propel them forward allow us to go behind the scenes of a city that is known as a dream destination for artists but remains an expensive and competitive place to live and work. The podcast lays bare the contradictory love-hate relationships between the artists and the city.

“You love it, you hate it, that’s New York,” says Alea, a Colombian singer-songwriter featured in the first episode of the Neoyorquinos podcast entitled “Nueva York te obliga a sacar las garras” [“New York forces you to get your claws out”].

In each interview, the artists share their experiences, challenges, and drive that ultimately keep them afloat in New York from a location of their choice that holds a special meaning to them. Their passionate stories accompanied by the vivid narration by Neoyorquinos host, Colombian-American actor Estefanía Giraldo, take the listener on a unique, poetic journey through the city and the lives of those that help shape it.
