Nonetheless she has chosen three songs for us today drawn from spooky legends. The best known is “La Llorona” a classic Mexican story about a woman who drowns her own children. We’ll also hear the story of “El Sombreron”. Let’s just say, ladies, don’t be seduced by the dude in the very large hat- it won’t end well. There is also the story of “El Fantasma de Canterville” based on Oscar Wilde’s The Ghost of Canterville. Check out the Spotify list Jasmine picked for more!
