Domingos En Vocalo

Latin Alternative with Rocio and Jesus

What do you do for Vocalo Radio?

I produce, host and curate a playlist of Latin-alternative music for Domingos en Vocalo, our weekly Latinx music, arts and culture programming en español on Sundays 3-6pm.

What’s the best part of your job? 

The best part of the job is having the freedom to feature emerging music from other countries, providing a space for dialogue for the Latinx community in Chicago and learning from the conversations while also connecting with other realities. I also love having the opportunity to speak with international award-winning artists who have taught me to keep it humble and authentic.

What do you love about Chicago?

Chicago is such a vibrant, multicultural and walkable city, depending on where you go one can feel somewhere in México, Puerto Rico, or in some part of Asia. It’s a plus for those of us who live near the lake!
