If you didn't quite recognize the language in that song, it's because it's an indigenous Latin-American language. NPR's Jasmine Garsd is here to explain. She is the cohost of Alt.Latino, NPR's weekly music podcast. She is joined usually by her cohort, Felix Contreras. Felix is away this week so Jas is flying solo. Happy to have you here as always.

MARTIN: OK, so, Jasmine, when we think of Latin-American music, usually we think Spanish, maybe Portuguese. You brought in something really different. Tell us more about this song.
