|from Aruba, last summer|
as you read this I’m currently hanging out on a beach in Mexico, soaking up the sun, reading for pleasure [!!!], and hopefully flexing some Spanish-speaking muscle [three classes in, and I need the practice!]. so as a result, this month’s playlist features a selection of songs from Spanish-speaking artists. I like to listen to listen to music in other languages as a way of immersing myself, and I’ve come to learn there’s something about the liveliness of Latin music that puts me in the mood for summertime. hope you enjoy!
on a semi-related note, I really don't the difference in usages between usages of Hispanic/Spanish-speaking/Latino/ etc, in terms of when it's appropriate to use each adjective. like, I used "Latin music" above because I didn't want to repeat Spanish-speaking again [hello, mouthful], but Spanish didn't exactly sound correct because it makes me think of the literal "from/related to Spain." and Hispanic I feel like is more used for describing a person's ethnicity, maybe? can anyone offer a clarification? please and thank you!
