13 Songs That Make You Proud To Be Puerto Rican


The New York Puerto Rican Day Parade is coming soon. Although we should not need a specific day to feel proud to be Boricua this was my inspiration to prepare this running playlist.

This playlist with what I consider the essence of Puerto Rico music. There’s a little something for the nostalgia, the great orchestras that made “old school” puerto rican music so sabrosa to just a hint of reggaeton to acknowledge the new strides that are being made in music.

I had so much song doing the research for this playlist! I don’t know you, but I’m ready to run with pride! (or stand up and dance with my imaginary white long skirt.)
