Social movements have long used music as a took to rally supporters and popularize causes. Today, young Mexican musicians are using new styles and genres, for example, rap and video, to get their message across, and addressing contemporary issues, such as the case of the 43 Ayotzinapa students. In today's program, host Laura Carlsen interviews singers and songwriters Lengualerta and Gabo Revueltas and video producer and graphic artist Gran Om. The three discuss their experiences, how they use music as a tool for changing society, and artists and social responsibility. teleSUR http://multimedia.telesurtv.net/v/interviews-from-mexico-433682/
