From Mexico With Love (And Beats)

Play associated audio

Ranchera accordions. Romantic boleros. Maybe some sweet cumbias. Those sounds spring immediately to mind when discussing Mexican music, but Mexico is a playground for musicians of all genres and backgrounds. Dig a little deeper and you'll find sensual son jarocho stylings alongside astounding rock 'n' roll and heart-accelerating electronica.

Every week on the Alt.Latino podcast, co-hosts Jasmine Garsd and Felix Contreras explore the sounds of Latin America. This week on Weekend Edition Sunday, they share some of their new favorites from northern Mexico's bubbling electronic-music scene.
