We've had a crazy year so far here on Alt.Latino, with a lot of traveling, music festivals and exciting guest DJs. We're not complaining, but we're ready to take a break, kick back and do one of our favorite things: share new music. This week, Felix even brings a bag of peanuts to the show and creates some chaos.

Join us while we explore new artists from Chile to California — yes, we consider California a country — and from South American disco to the sounds of the Mexican Caribbean reinterpreted Los Angeles-style.

No matter how much we get to travel and talk to our favorite musicians, one of the best things about doing Alt.Latino is speaking to our listeners. So let us know: What new music have you been enjoying these days?


Este año ha sido muy emocionante aquí en Alt.Latino. De ninguna manera nos quejamos de todos los viajes que hemos hecho a festivales de música, ni de las entrevistas a artistas que nos fascinan, pero definitivamente estamos listos para descansar un poco, sacarnos los zapatos, y dedicarnos a una de nuestras actividades favoritas: compartir nueva música con ustedes. Ah, y como podrán escuchar, Félix trajo una bolsa de cacahuates (maní para los compatriotas sudamericanos), y se armó un gran escándalo.

Esta semana compartimos nueva música, de Chile a California (sí, consideramos que California es un país aparte.) Desde pop sudamericano hasta los sonidos del Caribe mexicano reinterpretados por chicanos de Los Ángeles.

La verdad no importa cuánto viajamos ni cuántos artistas requetesuperimportantísimos entrevistamos. Una de las mejores cosas de poder hacer este programa es hablar con ustedes, nuestros oyentes. Así que cuenten: ¿qué música nueva han descubierto desde la última vez que hablamos?
