I got compliments on this playlist all night long at Judith & Hector’s bilingual, salsa-dancing, backyard, San Diego wedding last week. I had to give all the credit to the bride! This playlist kept the toes tapping and the guests humming. It combines a popular artist from the “Neo-Swing” genre, soft Latin sounds, Bjork’s quirkiness, Bob Marley’s “chill,” and a few juicy Indie gems. The result? Pure ear-alicious delight!
