It's that time of the year where the best upcoming musicians and bands from the world's Latin music community converge on New York City for a handful of crazy musical days, otherwise known as the Latin Alternative Music Conference. I'll be in attendance this year and am stoked to get a heads up on who's gonna be hot in the coming months when it comes to Latin alternative music. Here's some acts that I look forward to checking out when I'm out there while trying not to melt from the heat.
Oakland-based Panamanian rappers Los Rakas are playing the Summer Stage on July 10th with Fat Joe and Cuarto Poder. I'm excited to finally catch them live!
Argentinian singer-songwriter Natalia Clavier, her latest album has been played a lot on One World - am also excited to finally catch her live!
Miami-based Elastic Bond and the latest signee to Nacional Records - am also eager to catch them live! Retro meets tropical meets funky is what they've been described as.
