Hispanic Heritage Month: Mexico

Mexico and KEXP have a historical friendship. Mexico City was our first Latin American destination that we traveled to and we recorded 13 incredible artists from the contemporary Mexican scene there. At KEXP we celebrate the independence of this country, but also its wonderful musical community that we’ll represent with tons of music, new artists, interviews, live sessions and much more.

Below you'll find exclusive in-studios, interviews, guest mixes, podcasts, and more centered on Mexican artists.
