Latin Alternative

8 Mar

As we look to tomorrow, I ask you all to consider the many guises of “Latin Alternative” and its relationship to the music of Mexico City.

Exhibit A: The Latin Alternative Music Conference, first begun in 1999 in New York City to market “alternative” Spanish-language rock and pop acts.

Exhibit B: alt.latino, NPR’s program/podcast dedicated to Rock en Español and Latin Alternative (since fall 2010).

Exhibit C: Cafe Tacuba / Cafe Tacvba, “Dejate Caer” (2002)
