This edition: Season 13/Episode #5: Latin Alternative Music Conference (LAMC) Part 2

Episode Details

Original tape date: August 10, 2017.

First aired: November 23, 2017.

We dedicate this episode to the second part of the Latin Alternative Music Conference, LAMC, held once again this year in New York.

We start with the Puerto Rican singer Calma Carmona, with a striking image on and off the stage. She tells us how her musical style has evolved organically, and this is reflected on her newest album "100 Vidas."

Then, we talk to Camila Luna, the alternative pop/rock singer-songwriter whose origins reflect the variety of the Latino culture. In her case, it's a mix of Venezuela, Cuba, and Puerto Rico. Her youth hasn't been an obstacle to be nominated twice for the Latin Grammy -- in 2015 with her "Flamboyán" album and in 2017 with "Flora y Fauna."

We also interviewed the two-time Latin Grammy Award winner alternative rock band, La Vida Boheme, founded by Rafael Perez, Daniel de Sousa, Sebastian Ayala, and Henry D'Arthenay in Caracas, Venezuela toward the end of 2006. This band is influenced by punk, 80's music, disco, funk, electronic music, jazz, salsa, reggae, and dancing music.

We conclude with the singer-songwriter and producer of electropop music Javiera Alejandra Mena Carrasco. Born in Chile, Mena started playing in 2001 as part of a circuit of indie rock groups from Santiago. She balances her musical career by producing albums every four years. In 2006, "Esquemas Juveniles," in 2010, "Mena," and in 2014, "Otra Era."

Dedicamos este episodio a la segunda parte de la Conferencia de Música Latina Alterniva, LAMC, que se realiza anualmente en Nueva York.

Iniciamos con la cantante puertorriqueña Calma Cardona. Con una imagen impactante dentro y fuera del escenario, ella nos cuenta como su estilo musical ha evolucionado de manera orgánica, y esto se ve reflejado en su más reciente disco “100 vidas”

Luego, hablamos con Camila Luna la cantautora de pop/rock alternativo, cuyos origenes son reflejo de la pluralidad de la cultura Latina, es su caso, mezcla de Venezuela, Cuba y Puerto Rico. Su juventud no le ha impedido ser nominada al Latin Grammy dos veces, en el 2015 con su album “Flamboyán” y en el 2017 con “Flora y Fauna.”

Mås tarde, entrevistamos a la banda de Rock alternativo y ganadora de dos premios Grammy Latinos La Vida Bohème. Fundada por Rafael Pérez, Daniel De Sousa, Sebastián Ayala, y Henry D'Arthenay, en Caracas, Venezuela a finales de 2006, esta banda toma influencias del punk de los años 80, discoteca, funk, música electrónica, jazz, salsa, reggae y música de baile.

Y terminamos con la cantautora y productora de electropop Javiera Alejandra Mena Carrasco. Nacida en Chile, Mena empezó a tocar en el 2001 como parte del circuito de grupos de rock independiente de la ciudad de Santiago. Su trayectoria musical ha sido equilibrada, produciendo albunes cada 4 años, en el 2006, “Esquemas,” en el 2010 “Mena” y en el 2014 “Otra era”.
