Mi Negra Listening

posted Sep 27, 2016, 10:20 AM by Ms. J   [ updated Sep 27, 2016, 10:22 AM ]

Take a listen to this Spotify playlist of tracks suggested by your president and viola player extraordinaire, Lindsey Forg. These should showcase the rhythmic style of Mi Negra and inspire you to dance!

There is a particularly neat interpretation of the Led Zeppelin song, Stairway to Heaven at the end of the list.
