Yaro360 Talks to Home from Home Radio Show About His Music
and Culture
, Airs Monday, March 20

Los Angeles/New York City/March 17, 2010
– Yaro Celis, professionally known as
Yaro360, sat down with Christabel Nsiah-Buadi to discuss his relationship with African
Americans, reveal the political roots of Salsa music and how his culture resonates in his
work, for the Home from Home radio show, which will air on Monday, March 20.

On the heels of the Torii Hunter controversy, in which Hunter referred to dark-skinned Latin baseball players as “imposters,” Yaro delves into the complexities of the
relationship between African Americans and the Black Latino community.

Yaro is a music producer whose catalogue spans popular, urban, world and R&B and
whose talent for injecting African drum and Afro Latin chants gives modern music a
worldly texture and depth beyond a single genre. His colorful upbringing has always
included music: his youth stretched from Bogotá, Colombia and Mexico, to his late
adolescence in rural America. After a year in Glasgow, UK, he now enjoys a
professional career that straddles New York City and Los Angeles.

Others appearing on the show include Janet Johnson Bryant, founding member of the
Liberian Mass Action for Peace and Academy Award winning filmmaker Gini Reticker
about the impact of the civil war on Liberia's agriculture.

Home from Home is a multimedia radio show that celebrates the diversity of the global
black experience through interviews with newsmakers, artists and thinkers from all
corners of the globe, who connect to the African Diaspora experience.
