Che Guevara in Song

Judy is one of if not my favorite voice in Latin music criticism/journalism, and she created an interesting playlist for Rhapsody: Latin songs that pay homage, either directly or in spirit, to Che Guevara. She correctly identifies Che as being more of a pop cultural meme than a revolutionary figure at this point, but it is interesting just how positive most of the tracks are towards the man. Spending nearly a year in Miami, I would’ve guessed that his legacy in music would be a bit more mixed. There are even several albums dedicated specifically to Che.
