Back From Rio

Yes, I’m back from my (imaginary) trip to Rio! ;-) . ‘Back from Rio’ is mixed in 115 BPM. The title is inspired by an album from Roger McGuinn, the singer of the legendary rock band The Byrds. Twenty years ago he made a very nice solo album that was called ‘Back fron Rio’, although there wasn’t any Latin song on it. I liked the title, so I used it for this mix. It’s meant to warm you up for the world championship soccer and the Olympic Games that will be held in Rio de Janeiro in a few years’ time. By the way, not all of the songs are South American, some of them have a Cuban background as well. Enjoy!
