"Heart Beat" means to convey the close ties of Latino families. I often make positive pieces that relate to concerning issues but present a story that is positive. I have the opportunity to know a number of Latino families and recognize their special love for family. Here, I recorded two of my Latino family members whose hearts, hands, and dancing feet are just one of the the ways they bond and love.
