Global Notes: Latin Alternative Music Fest

Now in its third year, RuidoFest, a still-new Chicago music festival, is again bringing a wide variety of Latin music to the stage at a sprawling Pilsen-neighborhood park. 

The festival features norteño music from Texas, Puerto Rican reggae, Mexican electronica, Chilean alt-rock, electro- cumbia and more. The festival takes place July 7-9 at Addams/Medill park. 

For this week’s Global Notes with Morning Shift and Radio M host Tony Sarabia, we talk with one of the curators of RuidoFest, Eduardo Calvillo, about the festival's philosophy.
