Dancing on the border: New songs from Brazil, Peru, Mexico and more (Audio)
One thing I love about Alt.Latino is the creative license we have to play records representing every corner of the Latin world, from as many different genres and eras as we please. No one has said, “You must only play tropical songs!” “Nothing but rock ‘n’ roll!” Which is great, because those are unreasonable boxes in which to place a music show, especially when it comes to something as eclectic as Latin music and culture.
This week’s show is an excellent example of how great it is to have so much leg room. We dust off amazing Brazilian rock ‘n’ roll records, discover avant-garde Mexican melancholy music, spin great Colombian remixes and pay tribute to one of my favorite rappers, Italy’s Jovanotti.
