WECOME to LATINO DOT - ALT. ALT BABY.
From Argentina's Juana Molina to Colombia's Bomba Esterio. Maluca, Calle 13, Natalia Lafourcade from Mexico and a gang of other acts - including gen n faves Los Amigos Invisibles and indie stalwarts Aterciopelados - In fact, more worthy Latin acts that you can imagine descended on NYC last week for the 5 days and nights of pure Latino Alternative brilliance - everybody did their own thing - everybody brought their own unique magic. The NY Times' Jon Pareles takes it in, HERE.
That's Maluca above and the pics is by Chad Batka who has a sweet slide show at the times link above. Listen to some of the bands in the posts below and above this one.
