Cuban vocalist Daymé Arocena is featured on a new solo album with the all-female Cuban jazz band Maqueque.

Just another week of new music at Alt.Latino World Headquarters as we dig into Cuban music from Canada, Salvadoran/Mexican music from Los Angeles, Nuyorican protest music and Peruvian women striking a very musical blow against patriarchy.

The flow of new music coming — digitally via email or old-school snail mail — starts to pile up and sometimes I need help to sort through it all. So I called in Alt.Latino's New Music Senior Director/Curator Stefanie Fernández to help me find the good stuff.

We want to use this show as a reminder about the weekly playlist we update on Spotify and Apple Music. It's all in the name of music discovery; we go through it all so you don't have to.

You won’t find a paywall here. Come as often as you like — we’re not counting. You’ve found a like-minded tribe that cherishes what a free press stands for.  If you can spend another couple of minutes making a pledge of as little as $5, you’ll feel like a superhero defending democracy for less than the cost of a month of Netflix.
