This week on Alt.Latino, we're celebrating springtime. It's been a long, hard winter, and we're all ready to shed our jackets and get out there.

In that spirit, we've put together what we're calling the "Ladies Of Spring" playlist. It's full of amazing music that you can listen to while driving with the windows down — perhaps while sticking your head out like a puppy? — or enjoying a glass of wine on the porch, or even dancing at a warm all-night party.

Cuban disco, Mexican love ballads, Honduran-American anthems and winding Brazilian hip-hop: Meet the women who are here to start the season off right.
