SEASON 2

EPISODE 10

Prepare yourselves for the unadulterated passions of the tango - this week Castanettes flies (only figuratively, sadly) all the way to Argentina for one of Latin America's most dramatic music/ dance forms. We've handpicked a mix of tango classics and modern, electronic twists - all just for you.

EPISODE 9

Very special guest Callum Tipple joins us this week for an entire hour of reggaeton fun ! From old school classics to recent hits, we have everything you need to get you in the party mood...

Episode 8

This week Castanettes goes underground into the world of Spanish and Latin rap - pump up the volume for our selection of skilled 'raperos', from Mala Rodriguez to Orishas, and prepare yourselves for displays of true lyrical mastery within the genre.

EPISODE 7

Love is in the air as Castanettes brings you a special Valentine's themed episode with music to make you swoon from all around the Spanish-speaking world. From delicate tear-jerkers to impassioned Latin rock, we have you covered whatever your mood may be come February 14th.

EPISODE 6

Castanettes veers into film this episode as we host Gustavo Quino and Harry Morgan, the guys behind Oxford's favourite Latin American film festival Horizontes ! This one is a real cinematic treat, featuring music from a variety of Spanish-language films including Los Relatos Salvajes and Un Tango Más.
