Nearly a dozen Austin-based Latin alternative bands contributed to a compilation album that features many of the diverse sounds within the Austin Latin music scene.
For a recent Austin360 story, we chatted with Manny Morales of Austin Vida and Oscar Alarcon of La Vida Buena who made this compilation possible for distribution at the Latin Alternative Music Conference in New York. Now the two music lovers are planning to infuse a second life into the project and revamp the album, which is not for sale, for a future local release.
Featured “Austin Sonidos” artists include: Suns of Orpheus, Boca Abajo, Los Bandidos Cosmicos, Son de Rey, Paula Maya, Huerta Culture, Os Alquimistas ATX, Cinco Doce, El Tule, Los Kurados, La Vida Buena
While we wait for a new version of the album to be produced, listen to a Spotify playlist of some of the featured artists in Austin Vida’s “Austin Sonidos from the Live Music Capital.”
