The Latin Grammy nominations have just been announced: 48 categories of great and not so stellar music. But we want to hear about the good stuff — which is why we invited our friends Jasmine Garsd and Felix Contreras, from the NPR Music show Alt.Latino, to tell us who they're excited about this year. From Chilean hip hop to Puerto Rican rappers, and a flamenco legend who left us this year.
