Latin Roots: Latin Soul

The Joe Cuba Sextet.
The Joe Cuba Sextet.

For today's Latin Roots segment, Grammy-nominated record producer Aaron Levinson takes us back to the 1960s, when boogaloo and Latin soul ballads shared space on the radio. As more Puerto Ricans arrived in New York City, their music followed suit.

Levinson spins two English-language singles: one by Joe Bataan and one by the popular Joe Cuba Sextet with vocalist Jimmy Sabatier. Check out more Latin soul on Latin Roots' expanded Spotify playlist.
