Latin Roots Essential Salsa On New Series


September 11, 2014 - We begin a new Latin Roots series today. We went back to our correspondents and tasked them with choosing the essential songs in different genres of Latin music. What songs do you need to know or have in your collection? We start the series off with Grammy-winning record producer Aaron Luis Levinson and a passionate piece on the essential salsa songs. Don’t miss our essential salsa Spotify playlist as well.

Session Setlist
Cheo Feliciano - Anacaona
Héctor Lavoe - El Cantante
