An ‘Alt.Latino’ Christmas at NPR

Holiday traditions in Latin America run the gamut from Texas to Tierre del Fuego. There are parrandas in Puerto Rico, pastorelas in Mexico and Christmas trees and mistletoe in the U.S. This Christmas, Alt.Latino hosts Felix Contreras and Jasmine Garsd join Weekend Edition Saturday‘s Scott Simon to help put a contemporary spin on some of these traditions. Listen to the audio of the NPR show through the link below. You can also listen to their picks of best alt. Latino music on the site.
