Playlist: My Dad’s Music
When I was younger, my dad played only one genre of music at all times. Salsa. Naturally, I developed a resentment towards the genre as a whole, since it was all I heard. Growing up around kids roasting me for different parts of my cultural identity (such as salsa), I grew astray from the music. But as I grew up, I began accepting my culture and being proud of my identity. Now, I hold the genre close to my heart. Here’s a list of songs that remind me of my dad and some songs he always used to play.
