Latin Roots- Prog Rock? How About Prog Salsa!

This time on our Latin Roots segment with Ernesto Lechner from The Latin Alternative is here to talk about progressive salsa music.

As Ernesto puts it there was a conscious effort to be as experimental as possible. He will play us a couple of examples and check out the check our the Spotify Playlistfor further exploration.
