The folks behind SoCal-based indie label Wiretap Records, recently announced the launch of an imprint label known as ‘My Grito,’ aimed at supporting primarily Latin / LatinX artists in various mediums, including "bands/musicians, artists/muralists, comedians, entertainers, and more".

The label has kicked things off by releasing the first in a series of digital charity compilations "aimed to help communities and organizations doing good for Latinos", with Mas Alto! A Charity Compilation. All proceeds raised from this compilation will be donated to No Us Without You LA.

No Us Without You is a 501c3 Non-Profit Public Charity providing food security for undocumented Back Of House Staff and their families.

"Undocumented hospitality workers are the backbone of the hospitality industry. They are unemployed due to the COVID-19 pandemic and are not eligible for unemployment benefits even though they’re taxed every paycheck. $33 Feeds a Family of 4 for 1 week ... If we can raise even just a bit... let's do our part."

The compilation has been released in 'Pay What You Want' scenario and it features new music from the folloowing Latino / LatinX artists:
