This week, Hurray for the Riff Raff’s Alynda Segarra is back in Puerto Rico, visiting schools to donate musical instruments for students and getting ready for HFTRR’s island debut at La Respuesta in Santurce (free show, familia, free show). Latino Rebels Radio host Julio Ricardo Varela gave Alynda a call on Monday to talk about her week in Puerto Rico, what it means to be Nuyorican and where HFTRR goes next. And yeah, the convo gets pretty deep, but what would you expect when two Puerto Ricans get together to talk about music, life and neocolonialism?

This week’s podcast closed out with the spectacular “Pa’lante’ single, whose video is gaining attention at film festivals all over the world.
