The Best Music of 2016

The Best Latin Music Of 2016

It seems to me that each passing year brings even more exciting music from both new and familiar names. Musicians in every style of the genre we call Latin alternative music are subtly — or not so subtly — challenging expectations and redefining musical rules. This list is merely the tip of the iceberg: The small corner of the musical industry we cover on Alt.Latino is extremely healthy and bursting with vibrant, creative and visionary musicians. –Felix Contreras
