Songs That Rocked 2012: Alt.Latino's Listener Picks

Throughout the year, Alt.Latino hosts Jasmine Garsd and Felix Contreras have been visiting Weekend Edition Sunday and sharing exciting new music from across the Latin world. Here, they swing by one last time before the year is up, to tell us about some of the best music of 2012.
