This week’s Beat Latino is a tribute to the city of Paris, mythic city of unparalleled beauty which has long symbolized spontaneity, romance, freedom and pure joie de vivre. The week’s selection includes songs about loving Paris in different seasons, French salsa, music from Latin musicians who have found a home in Paris, and many other tunes that we share in the hopes for the future. May the city of light continue to shine in wonder for us all. ​Photo: Catalina Maria Johnson​
