Africa Latina

Workout Playlist: Africa Latina

It’s been way too long since I’ve had a gym jam post! Therefore I have brought to you my beloved Africa Latina playlist that graced my presence about a year ago. The fact that it’s still in rotation a year later is proof of its staying power/dopeness. I’ve listened to it at the gym, but I actually prefer to just put this playlist on so I can dance to it, which is such a great form of exercise.

This playlist is a mash up of some Soukous, Semba, Highlife, Dancehall, Rumba, House and more. And if you think this type of music doesn’t appeal to your musical sensibilities, take a chance and give it a listen. There’s gems in here.

By the way, the playlist starts off with slower jams, but the beats per minute in the tracks increase precisely at 6.10. It’s perfect for warming up before you get going. Also, I posted the actual tracklist so that if a particular track catches your fancy, it will be easy to get separately. I’ve also used Shazam to find some of the artists listed here. Enjoy and thank me later; did I mention you can download this gem for free?! Have a great sweat 🙂
