Depending on where you live, spring is at your doorstep. So we thought it was a good time to invite the hosts of Alt.Latino,NPR's weekly Latin music and culture show, to share some fresh new music with us. We've got a Brazilian hip-hop star, a rising Chilean folk artist, a moody Mexican singer and more.

As always, be sure to hop into the comments to let us know what music you've been using to help usher in the warmer weather.
