Quique Neira New Single “LATINOAMERICA LIBRE”

Quique Neira New Single “LATINOAMERICA LIBRE” released Sept 2017

Single LATINOAMERICA LIBRE

“Latinoamérica libre” (“Free Latin America”)  emerges from the emergence of a new leadership in some world powers, who have the boldness to launch concepts that come to bear the dignity of Latin American peoples, as is the speech of Donald Trump. It is not an affront against Mexico only – it is against all Latin America and we have to make our point of view.
