The annual South by Southwest Music and Media Conference and Festival is arguably America’s hottest gathering of tech industry, social media and music enthusiasts. Held in Austin, Texas, the five-day music festival portion of the event will host more than 2,000 acts at more than 100 venues across the hip and trendy city. And while event organizers have made sure that nearly 50 countries are represented among this year’s musical acts, Latin music – across hip hop, electronica and rock – is providing a soundtrack that will make this year’s festival one of the best over its 26-year-history. Here’s a look at five bands and musicians who will be spicing up the music scene next week at SXSW 2013.
