The Latin Alternative Music Conference returns this year with a triple bill of traditional and modern Mexican music headlined by Tijuana's Nortec Collective. Led by founders Bostich and Fussible, Nortec Collective continues its "amazing deconstruction of norteño DNA: accordions, the acoustic guitar called bajo sexto, the funky two-step polka popular in rural areas along the U.S./Mexican border, and the steady four-on-the-floor beat that can propel a dance floor to delirium" (NPR). Mexican Institute of Sound brings its own fusion of folk and electronica, and Mariachi Flor de Toloache is New York's only all-female mariachi band.
