Festivo Alt.Latino is a holiday travelogue through the eyes and ears of four very different Latin Alternative musicians who put aside their contemporary sounds and go back to their musical and cultural roots.
Latin American holiday traditions often reflect both
indigenous and European roots with distinct characteristics that
are often only similar in the language used.
NPR Music's Alt.Latino hosts Felix Contreras and Jasmine
Garsd take us on a Latin American musical tour.
Latin Alternative music is at its core a cultural hybrid of
tradition mixed with genres like hip hop, rock, punk and electronic
dance music. Contreras and Garsd have assembled a sampling of some
of the genre's most creative minds to share holiday music from four
very rich Latin American cultures.
