Whether or not you celebrate Cinco de Mayo, you'll need some music this weekend.

This weekend brings the return of Cinco de Mayo. As we've discussed in a past episode of Alt.Latino, some of our listeners celebrate this holiday, while others don't. If you do observe it — with, say, a party or a barbecue — here's a cool and relaxing playlist for you and your guests. If you don't, consider this week's show a celebration of the fact that a long, hard winter seems to finally be behind us.
