Sunday afternoons @ 4:00 pm
Hosted by Jasmine Garsd & Felix Contreras
NPR Music's program dedicated to Latin Alternative music and rock in Spanish is hosted by Jasmine Garsd and Felix Contreras.
Every week, Alt.Latino introduces listeners to new alternative Latin music, including diverse genres such as cumbia, Mexican garage rock, Panamanian rap, heavy metal mariachi and many more boundary-blurring sounds from around the world. In addition to music, Alt.Latino features interviews and insightful conversation about Latin events and culture.
Hosts Felix Contreras and Jasmine Garsd's discussion of music and culture reflects their experiences as Latino immigrants (third and first generation, respectively), and is informed by Felix's long career covering Latin music and culture for NPR, NBC and Univision. Alt.Latino listeners actively contribute to these conversations and share their thoughts on music, politics, literature and cultural identity via Facebook and Twitter.
Alt.Latino airs Sunday afternoons at 4:00 pm on KRCB-FM 104.9 / streaming @ norcalpublicmedia.org /Download the FREE KRCB mobile app @ iTunes & Google Play!
