Playlist of the month: A Latin-Hispanic celebration

Playlist+of+the+month%3A+A+Latin-Hispanic+celebration

With the beginning of Hispanic Heritage Month coming up, it’s time we take a look at a community shaped by cultures all around the globe. Taking strong inspiration from the music of Africa, the Iberian Peninsula and the indigenous peoples of Central and South America, it’s no wonder that Latin music can’t help but get a party going. If you’re looking for a playlist to get you through the rut of tedious assignments starting to pile up, look no further. These songs will get your hips moving as you crank out some homework while grooving out.

Latino artists have been making notable strides in American pop culture for decades, from rock legends like Santana with “Maria Maria” to pop icons like Shakira with classics like “Hips Don’t Lie.” And with names like Bad Bunny consistently hitting top charts with beats like “Tití Me Preguntó,” Latin music continues to be alive and well with new names continuing to be on the rise.

Our Goal

We hope you appreciate this article! Before you move on, our student staff wanted to ask if you would consider supporting The Appalachian's award-winning journalism. We are celebrating our 90th anniversary of The Appalachian in 2024!

We receive funding from the university, which helps us to compensate our students for the work they do for The Appalachian. However, the bulk of our operational expenses — from printing and website hosting to training and entering our work into competitions — is dependent upon advertising revenue and donations. We cannot exist without the financial and educational support of our fellow departments on campus, our local and regional businesses, and donations of money and time from alumni, parents, subscribers and friends.

Our journalism is produced to serve the public interest, both on campus and within the community. From anywhere in the world, readers can access our paywall-free journalism, through our website, through our email newsletter, and through our social media channels. Our supporters help to keep us editorially independent, user-friendly, and accessible to everyone.

If you can, please consider supporting us with a financial gift from $10. We appreciate your consideration and support of student journalism at Appalachian State University. If you prefer to make a tax-deductible donation, or if you would prefer to make a recurring monthly gift, please give to The Appalachian Student News Fund through the university here: https://securelb.imodules.com/s/1727/cg20/form.aspx?sid=1727&gid=2&pgid=392&cid=1011&dids=418.15&bledit=1&sort=1.
