Since we are still celebrating such an important month, our MICHE MIX OF THE WEEK pays tribute to those Latino/Hispanic musical collaborations that we all have grown to love. It seems like joining forces with other artists (even from different genres) is the thing to do nowadays. Since teamwork makes the dream work, we made sure the tunes selected for this playlist were in Spanish and featured two artists (or more) who were Latino/Hispanic. This list contains songs from various decades and includes many genres of music in Spanish.
Dancing is also a great way to cope with anything that comes your way throughout the work week. There is nothing like having a dance session and just letting the music take control of your body! Since we are in the last week of National Hispanic Heritage Month, our MICHE MIX OF THE WEEK is made up of epic songs that mothers and tías would most likely enjoy jamming out to during their Zumba class or any type of dance/workout session. It’s a mix that will make it impossible to just stay seated or stand motionless next to a wall. You will be up on your feet ready to hit the dance floor. All these songs are señora approved. (¡Un saludo especial a todas las abuelitas, mamás y tías que nos obligaban a bailar en las fiestas familiares!)
Since we are still in the middle of National Hispanic Heritage Month, our MICHE MIX OF THE WEEK pays tribute to old school reggaetón. This genre of music originated in Puerto Rico in the 90’s (and since then has been influenced by many Latin American and African sounds) but it didn’t become popular until the 2000’s here in the United States. This playlist does not contain anything involving Bad Bunny, J Balvin, Maluma, Anuel AA, Natti Natasha or Karol G. It contains the artists who paved the way before they became the superstars that they are now. These songs are from artists such as Daddy Yankee, Ivy Queen, Tego Calderón, Wisin & Yandel and Don Omar. These songs are those hits that were all over the Spanish urban radio stations and were playing on various Myspace pages during the 2000’s. #IfYouKnowYouKnow
