Spotify Playlist: Salsa and Latin Jazz

Back to blog

Every year, Summer Fest presents the largest celebration of Latin jazz and salsa found on the West Coast. In addition to Angélique Kidjo’s headline tribute to salsa on the Sobrato Organization Main Stage, find a wide range of Latin flavors sprinkled throughout the Fest, including on our popular Salsa Stage.

Preview the danceable rhythms and infectious energy of these vibrant sounds with our second Summer Fest Spotify playlist. Our selection was overseen by Summer Fest Latin music curator Arturo Riera, “MisterLatinJazz,” and the collection highlights the various Latin jazz and salsa artists you can hear all weekend at the Fest. Artists include Pedrito Martinez, Oscar Hernandez and Alma Libre, Pacific Mambo Orchestra, and more.
