This hour presents a multi-culti overview of the pioneers of Latin alternative and Urban Latino music from Latino USA, Spain, Mexico, Colombia, Cuba, Puerto Rico and other Latin American countries. The alt latino wave brought to the world irresistible beats to themes of concern about political protest, green issues, AIDS, Guantanamo, Katrina, the economy and immigration. Includes Manu Chao’s “Politik Kills”, a message from Los Mocosos, a San Francisco-based band to “Senor Presidente”, and Gil Scott-Heron’s “The Revolution will not be Televised” in versions of Latin alternative groups from both from Mexico and Spain.
