'Alt.Latino,' Coming To You From A Closet Abroad
NPR's Alt.Latino Host Jasmine Garsd is spending a few months in Mexico City, a city she calls "one of the Latin meccas of music." In addition to researching great stories there, she's been tracking down innovative places to record quality audio.
Garsd posted this photo from one of her makeshift recording studios in the city, and says:
"Desde las oficinas de grabacion de Alt.Latino en Mexico- tmbn conocido como un placard con buena acustica"
Which in English means:
"From the recording offices of Alt.Latino in Mexico – a.k.a. a closet with good acoustics"
We'll have more updates from Garsd's trip in the coming weeks. In the meantime, hear Jasmine and her co-host Felix Contreras rock out in a new episode of Alt.Latino, coming at you from both Mexico and Washington, D.C. this week. Rock out with the Latin music-loving duo for some Argentine digital folk, a Chilean song of love lost, Mexican cumbia and rap inspired by a classic Panamanian song.
