On episode 51 Luis Enrique and Mateo Gil are our guests on episode 51. Salsero Luis Enrique, who most people know for his global hit “Yo No Se Mañana” from 2009, has a new book out titled “Autobiografía“. We discuss many topics from his difficult immigration experience in the US to meeting his mother for the first time at 15, but perhaps the most salient moments of the interview had to do him being discriminated by Latinos, “Yo No Se Mañana” almost being sung in English, should Latinos have their own award shows and how salsa can become #1 on Billboard’s Hot 100.
Then we chat with acclaimed Spanish screenwriter Mateo Gil (Vanilla Sky, The Sea Inside) who has directed a new sci-fi film called Realive” which explores life and death and whether we turn to dust or if there is an actual thing as a soul.
