Latin Roots#48 - Judy Cantor-Navas Whets Your Thanksgiving Appetite With Songs About Food For The Holiday

Latin Roots Judy Cantor-Navas Whets Your Thanksgiving Appetite With Songs About Food For The Holiday

November 28, 2013 - This is a special Latin Roots for Thanksgiving today with Judy Cantor-Navas, editor at Billboard Magazine, playing some of her favorite tropical songs about food.
As Judy puts it these are songs with “sabor”, flavor, and maybe a couple of double entendres. We will hear from El Gran Combo de Puerto Rico celebrating their 50th anniversary and more. There is also an extended playlist on Spotify for those with larger appetites.

Latin Roots is made possible by a grant from The Wyncote Foundation.

Session Setlist
EL MENU by El Gran Combo de Puerto Rico from Happy Days
OJALA QUE LLUEVA CAFE by Juan Luis Guerra from Ojala Que Lllueva Cafe
