With July heating up – we turn our attention to NYC and the annual Latin Alternative Music Conference.
In its 18th year, the conference will feature the specially curated Central Park Summerstage & Celebrate Brooklyn shows. As well as showcases like Sounds From Spain & Focus On Venezuela; both of those feature artists from each of the respective music scenes. In addition to live shows, there will be panels and discussions geared at strengthening a niche music genre that is learning to adapt to the new digital waves. And let’s not forget that the conference’s host is KCRW DJ Raul Campos, who will be sharing the sounds with you on his shows this Saturday and Sunday (beginning @ 3pm PT).
