Rock With Sabor!

Aug 02, 11 Rock With Sabor!

When you think of Latin music, salsa and merengue are probably some of the first things that spring to mind. Most people associate Latin music with the traditional, tropical, get-your-rumba-on type rhythms we’re admittedly best known for. But let’s not forget there’s a whole world out there of Latin American rock, which is not just rock in Spanish but a genre all its own with distinct influences and cadences. Jasmine Garsd and Felix Contreras are well aware of this, which is why these two rockeros started Alt.Latino, a show on NPR where Jasmine and Felix share their love and knowledge of Latin Alternative music. The show was started in hopes of connecting with like-minded people as well as introducing new listeners to the vast collection of amazing music out there by established artists like Los Fabulosos Cadillacs, Café Tacuba, Caifanes and Soda Stereo among many others, as well as up-and-coming bands. This show is definitely worth checking out, even if you’re not a rocker chick you might discover something you’d never thought you’d like. Either way, let’s make sure to spread the word and get some support going for this truly awesome project!
