Alt.Latino Guest DJ: Getting Down With Quetzal : Alt.LatinoMembers of the Grammy-winning Chicano roots band Quetzal share an eclectic mix of what they're listening to, from Palestinian rap to Morrissey and The Smiths.
Being in a band is fun, and not just for the obvious reasons. I'm talking about how a collection of disparate individuals, usually with their own musical tastes and preferences, come together to create a unique sound built from all of those influences.
Such is the case with our Guest DJs this week: three members of the Grammy-winning SoCal band Quetzal. While the band is known for its almost 25 years of performing Mexican roots music, there isn't a single acoustic folk song among the six tracks that Quetzal Flores, Martha González and Tylana Enomoto picked for today's show.
