Time marches on and so does the music. We now face the last months of 2021, so you can expect some serious fall drops. On this episode, we have our usual wide swath of Latinx musicians expressing themselves in a variety of genres and styles: Colombian avant-garde cumbia; Tropicália-inspired pop from Brazil; a fiery rock ballad in Spanish; a new track featuring the Funkmeister himself, George Clinton (yes, THAT George Clinton!); and a few more yummy surprises.

All these tracks can be found on Alt.Latino's weekly playlist via Spotify and Apple Music.
