A taste of Latin + Spanish Music!

A playlist of the artists featured in the article to listen to as you read:

During this time of uncertainty, I hope you, the reader, have found comfort and gratitude in the small things.

Staying home more regularly than we did before the pandemic gives us the opportunity to heal ourselves and our homes. We can start to change our own world by letting more Love into our lives. Whether that looks like helping our siblings with their homework, caring for our elderly loved ones, helping around the house for our parents, or finding joy within and sharing it with others, Love can radically change our world one small step at a time.

When we feel helpless about the situations around us, we can choose to Love in our own lives. Loving others by sacrificing our time or our wants, for their happiness and wellbeing, should not have to be seen as signs of subordination, weakness, or insecurity. Instead, loving others should be seen as a sign of our compassion, empathy, and strength.

Love rules...after all, how many songs can you name that don’t talk about love in some way? Here are {some!} Latin and Spanish artists that I enjoy listening to! This is a very random list, and none of these are reggaeton songs, but instead mostly rock. Many of these are old but gold!

Celebrating cultures different from your own is a form of Love, too:)

Here is one particular collaborative song that celebrates all Latin and Spanish cultures, and that is perfect for our times, as it is all about having Hope:
