Especial Favoritas 2020

Normalmente en martes I host a Guest DJ from around our comunidad, but since we've been getting back into the swing of things, and since I haven't been able to share my 2020 favorites in one spot yet - here are 52 of my favorite releases of last year!

Musica Nueva: Tropa Magica

I've been a fan of los hermanos Pacheco since the Thee Commons days. They've been in the CPR Performance studio as Thee Commons, and as we know them today - Tropa Magica. Last year, they released the album Tripiando Al Infinito En Mi Recamara, and just released this video for the song, "Chalino Y Sus 7 Balasos."
