Bachata and other Latin dances
When I started ballroom dancing, I had never heard of bachata or merengue. I vaguely knew what salsa was (other than the reason tortilla chips were invented). Now I'm obsessed. I can't stop listening to music for these styles of dance. I love dancing them and that has translated into a love of listening to that style of music. Bonus points: since the lyrics are in Spanish, I can't sing along. However, I've found that I'm starting to learn phrases even though I don't know what they mean. Check out my playlist on Spotify or on YouTube. I do have some favorites.
