Encanto Tropical 28 (World Salsa Radio) with DJ Angel Figueroa -- focus on Puerto Rican salsa, interview with DJ BoriQua

This episode features a guest interview for the first time in a while. I managed to have a great talk with DJ BoriQua, one of the co-founders of World Salsa Radio. His show, "Afincando con DJ BoriQua" broadcasts on Saturdays 10:00am - 1200pm (Pacific Time). See the preceding blog post for more details.

Encanto Tropical  28 (DJ Angel Figueroa) Interview with DJ BoriQua

With DJ BoriQua as my guest, I thought it would be fitting to spotlight Puerto Rican salsa. There are 22 tracks spanning different decades with a range of artists from La Isla del Encanto, with a pre-interview mix (12 tracks) and a post-interview mix (10 tracks).

My selection of songs is not intended as a "best-of list". Tracks were chosen primarily on a personal basis, but on most occasions I also chose songs that were not among the most famous of a given artist. Importantly, I also focused on songs by artists based in Puerto Rico -- as opposed to those who permanently relocated to the United States ((with just a few exceptions).
