This week's episode of Alt.Latino offers songs for recovery and healing.

We don't talk politics on Alt.Latino, but the core of our mission is to bring people together through music. So this week's episode is something special, with very little talking amidst quiet music that we offer in the hope that it helps you heal after this one-of-a-kind election season.

This week's show was recorded before Tuesday's elections, in the spirit of embracing the future no matter the outcome. So let's all take a deep breath, let it out, and listen.
