In celebration of the ten year anniversary of Red Hot & Latin, Nacional Records is bringing back the ahead-of-its-time compilation and reissuing it as Red Hot & Latin Redux with brand new bonus tracks from some of todays most cutting-edge Latin Alternative artists like Brazilian Girls w/Kevin Johansen, Thievery Corporation, Nortec Collective, Kinky and Plastilina Mosh.

Silencio=Muerte: Red Hot & Latin, originally released in 1997 on Jellybean Benitez H.O.L.A Recordings, was the tenth album in the Red Hot series created to fund the fight against AIDS in Latin America and the Latino community.  The pairing of artists like David Byrne and Caf Tacuba reflected a cultural encounter far ahead of its time that continues to provide a music-without-language-barriers soundtrack for the multi-cultural American experience.   When Red Hot & Latin was originally released, the album was the subject of an MTV special that received widespread critical praise and aired worldwide.
Profits generated by Red Hot & Latin Redux will go to the Red Hot Organization to continue fighting AIDS in the U.S. Latino community and in Latin America.
