The stunning photo of Francisca Valenzuela in the Movistar Area in Santiago tells it all. Latin music – and Latinas – had a great year. Read about some of them here.

Guadalupe Reyes, single and video by Nancy Sanchez and Luckas O. What a kick. The fusion of mariachi and cumbia tells the story of Luipita who went off to church and wound up in a 26 day-long party. The song and the video by the Mexican-American blues/mariachi/pop singer-songwriter Nancy Sanchez and the Guadalajara-based singer-songwriter Luckas O. will make you want to party for at least that long. I predict this will be a classic party song.  Stream on Spotify. Catch the great Guillermo More / Polie Pérez video on YouTube. Spanish.

Old Shoes, single by Maggie Cubillos. An engaging combination of a strong rhythm, a beautiful, innocent voice, and sophisticated composition make this debut song an earworm worth listening to, and listening again to catch the nuances woven into the song’s beauty. Stream on Spotify and major platforms.

White Roses in the Snow, album by Matt Jaffe.  Eight songs, each a stand alone work of art and together an album that will stay with you. Matt creates psychological environments, palpable emotions, and lyrical myths in a style that has no parallel. Stream on Spotify.

Redemption , single/video by Locos por Juana. Get your dancing shoes on and prepare yourself for smooth flowing Latin energy that physically moves you. Even gringos will get their Latin on as they rock their hips to this addictive reggae. And later this week, the band will release Sonrisa – a party all by itself.  Stream Redemption on Spotify and watch for the release of Sonrisa. Spanish.

Abrazándonos, single by Francisco Valenzuela. Valenzuela is one of the the most  versatile artists on the scene today. From the inspiring La Fortaleza to the serious Flotando, to the happy, upbeat Abrazándonos,, it seems that there is nothing she can’t do,  and everything she does  – including this song – are stratospheric. Steam on Spotify and all major platforms. Spanish.
