Master Playlists


"Duele Le Le": Pass the caipirinha. —Pistolera  

“Sound System Municipal”
El Gran Silencio
These guys know how to rock the accordion and the cowbell.

“Los Lunaticos (El Manicomio Está en Manos de los Locos)”
Los de Abajo
A staple in the Latin alternative-music scene. They make you want to dance with your fists in the air!

“Si Señor”
Control Machete
From Mexico’s best hip-hop band.

“Déjate Caer”
Café Tacuba
One of their more mellow songs, but makes me feel like being outside in the sunshine.

“Sin Ti”
Very Be Careful
The ultimate vallenato jam, so much that Pistolera does a cover. Instant dance party.

“La Vida Es un Carnaval”
Celia Cruz
I know we hear it all the time, but it’s a damn good song!

“Quítate Tú”
Fania All-Stars
Classic Fania tune.

“La Vida Continua”
The Spam Allstars
Kick back and let life continue.

“Duele Le Le”
Zuco 103
Brazilian electronic dance groove. Pass the caipirinha.

“La Boa”
La Sonora Santanera
Old-school classic. You can’t deny La Santanera.
