La Musica del Futuro?

Friends and followers of this blog might remember that I have written about Deevani (Ines Rooney) and how she upsets a linear narrative about reggaeton's development by highlighting a number of often neglected circuits.

Here is her latest collaboration with Fuego (from Chosen Few) called "Que Buena Tu Ta."  While I have qualms about some of the imagery in the video, I do think sonically it's interesting to consider the fact that these two Dominican artists, one singing in Hindi, are able to skillfully blend Bhragra-pop, mambo urbano, and reggaeton thus highlighting the various movements of  what we recognize today as "Caribbean rhythms."

Pretty dope if you ask me.  Thoughts?
