In the last month we've been travelling non-stop, covering music festivals from Texas to Mexico, and recording some pretty amazing Guest DJ's, including folk icon Lila Downs and actor John Leguizamo. It's been an exciting time during which we've also accumulated a stack of brand new records to share with you, and we needed to kick back, enjoy a cool beverage, and listen to some tunes. We have a mellow show today with some smooth Brazilian tunes, infectious funk, and a brand new discovery out of the Los Angeles coffee shop circuit who has us grooving in our seats.

We invite you to close your eyes, tune out the world and tune in to one of the funkiest, chillest Alt.Latino shows we've done yet.

11 Nuevas Canciones Para Cerrar Los Ojos Y Bailar Lento

En el último mes hemos estado viajando sin parar, llendo a festivales de música desde Texas a México, y grabando con invitados especiales como la icónica cantante folklórica Lila Downs y el comediante neoyorquino John Leguizamo. También en estos días de viaje hemos acumulado pilas de música nueva para compartir con ustedes, y hoy tenemos ganas de quitarnos los zapatos, abrir una bebida fría, y escuchar canciones. Esta semana tenemos un programa muy tranquilo y relajante. Vamos a escuchar unas suaves baladas brasileras, canciones de funk contagiosas, y una nueva artista de Los Angeles que nos dejó boquiabiertos.


Te invitamos a que te quites los zapatos, cierres los ojos, apagues el estrés y prendas Alt.Latino.
