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.
Host Felix Contreras' discussion of music and culture reflects his experiences as a Latino immigrant, and is informed by his long career covering Latin music and culture for NPR, NBC and Univision.
Contreras is frequently heard on NPR's news programs, where he speaks to millions of listeners about the latest in Latin alternative music and the experiences of Latinos in the United States and abroad vis-á-vis music.
