Public radio station KCRW is broadcasting from the Latin Alternative Music Conference (LAMC) this week. KCRW and its morning show, Morning Becomes Eclectic has been a important venue for Spanish language music of all genres. Here’s what Raul Campos, KCRW host and DJ says of the conference:

“The Latin Alternative Music Conference has taken a sound that was always considered underground and helped it become a global force in music and receive the respect it deserves. KCRW is one of few radio stations to play Latin Alternative music so we’ve been on this journey together. It’s an exciting time as we celebrate the 10th anniversary of LAMC, which has been instrumental in pushing this sound forward and to the masses. I’ve been fortunate and honored to have hosted and MC’d the conference for the last few years. The hustle and bustle of NYC is like no other, but when these few days are in effect, it’s definitely on a different level! Growing up with this sound and seeing some of these bands blossom has been a real treat and the opportunity to deejay on the Central Park stage with acts like Cafe Tacuba, Julieta Venegas and countless others has truly been a dream come true for me.”

Niño Diamante’s dream to attend the LAMC conference stems back to the conference’s first year. Ten years later, he’s not there yet. But that’s okay. Thank you KCRW for showcasing some of Latin Alternative’s most inventive and talented artists as well as highlighting emerging acts. Below is a list of Morning Becomes Eclectic LIVE performances by artists such as Kinky, Alla, Brazilian Girls, Ximena Sarinana, and Ceci Bastida.
