In this episode: Recently Soundcheck and NPR’s Latino USA teamed up during the Latin American Music Conference for a special night of music and conversation at WNYC's Greene Space. Hosted by John Schaefer and Maria Hinojosa, the bill showcased two fantastic acts who re-imagine Latin roots sounds in extraordinary ways: the Brooklyn psychedelic salsa band La Mecánica Popular and the sonically adventurous Argentinian songwriter Juana Molina.

Hear highlights from those performances – as well as hear from the ambitious and renowned Labyrinth Theater Company.
