Once a week on the NPR podcast Alt.Latino, hosts Jasmine Garsd and Felix Contreras share new music from across the Spanish- and Portuguese-speaking world. Today, they visit Weekend Edition Sunday to highlight some recent favorites that didn't make it onto the show. Included are the funky Argentine ensemble Illya Kuryaki and the Valderramas, and Mexican singer Carla Morrison, who reinvents her hit "Dejenme Llorar" with help from Nina Diaz of the Texan trio Girl in a Coma.
