“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 Café 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.

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 today’s most cutting-edge Latin Alternative artists. It also features remastered tracks from the original release. And all the tracks from the original and the reissue will be available for digital download.” – redhot.org

“The original edition of Red Hot + Latin was the tenth project produced by the Red Hot Organization to rasie money and awareness to stop the spread of AIDS.

Red Hot + Latin Redux is a deliberate attempt to continue dealing with AIDS in Latin America and the US Latino community. AIDS is truly a global problem.

Even though there is not yet a cure and AIDS continues to burn like a wild fire around the world, it is a preventable disease. Using a latex condom when engaging in vaginal or anal intercourse is a relatively simple precaution compared to the mortal risk of HIV infection. The other primary mode of passing the virus is through unclean needles, so, if you are an injection drug user, clean your works and don’t share needles.

Too many people have suffered and died because simple information and prejudice surrounding AIDS has made a health crisis into a vast social tragedy. We hope that the joyful noise emanating from this album will help people come together to fight this terrible disease.

Red Hot + Latin was a labor of love originally put together ten years ago with the help of a lot of understanding musicians, artists, labels, publishers and music lovers. A lot has changed in this last decade not only in music but also in the understanding of AIDS within the Latino communities of the world. I am happy to say that the songs on the original Red Hot + Latin have survived the tests of time and still sound fresh and exciting. Enjoy them and the new songs we have added. Play this cd often and loud and don’t forget, “no glove, no love”.
