What does Latin Alternative sound like, you ask? “There is no one specific sound, genre, beat, or even theme in Latin alternative. You have rock bands next to hip-hop acts next to reggae bands next to modern pop artists. What they all have in common is that they are not afraid to step out of the box.” — Tomas Cookman
Tomas Cookman on the uprising of #nacionalrecords and #latinalternative : “The fact that we had the number one +Billboard Latin Pop Album and the number one billboard #worldmusic album with the compilation album we did with starbucks “Café Con Musica”, and you have kids in Indiana saying they came across it and love it — is a testament to the world of Latin alternative.”
On his MTV Tr3s show, Tomas says: ““When it came to the Tr3s show I didn’t want a host; I want it to be about the music and only the music.” And asi es Nacional— we live, breath, and speak music.
