Meet the Guy Who is Not Part of the Latino Indie Movement

Roberto Lange, a.k.a. Helado Negro, creates music inspired by all kinds of other music he listened to while growing up. Music that fits nicely into genres, like salsa, rave, rap and R&B. His music, however, doesn’t fit into any one category.

His tunes are an amalgamation of electronic waves, soothing Spanish lyrics, static and rhythmic beats. There isn’t a beginning, climax or end to his songs. They could go on forever.

Some are calling this Latino Indie, even if he doesn’t agree.

“We’re not purposely avoiding the clichés in the music, we’re just not aligning ourselves with them,” says Helado Negro. “We’re Latinos because we’re Latinos. That’s the commonality.”

The “we” he could be referring to are artists like Xenia Rubinos and Algodón Egipcio.

Just when you thought you could pigeonhole Latino artists, they turn around and do their own thing!

As much as we don’t want to admit it, life has proven over and over again just how on-point mom was when she said:

Vaporub cures everthing.


Maybe not eeeverything, but it did soothe us.

Amor de lejos, amor de pendejos.


Had I known then what I know now, hell no I wouldn’t have dated that guy from Buenos Aires ?.

She’s not a real friend.

Te tienes que bañar todos los días.


We complained because we swore we weren’t smelly, but have you ever walked into a meeting after skipping a shower and felt everyone can tell? It’s because they can.

“No sé” is not an answer.


She was getting us ready for the real world because this never flies with any boss.

You’ll understand when you’re older.

It makes you feel so grown up old when you start getting mom’s point.

Cuando tengan hijos se van a acordar de mi.


God help me if they turn out as crazy.

No les habremos dado lujo ni riqueza, pero les dimos estudio.


And it was one of the best things she could’ve pushed us to do. Thank you.
