Lately, I have been turning on Bossa Nova music or Afrocuban mixes on Spotify to enjoy while I’m cooking or journaling. It’s an end of day ritual that feels just right, especially during the longer, slower evenings of summer. Buena Vista Social Club and Cesaria Evoria are some of my favorites. They remind me of the time I spent traveling in Africa and Cuba. I have such a deep appreciation for the music of those countries. – Amy Voloshin, Founder

Our current evening playlist includes a mix of our favorite songs, plus a few that feel right for the summer. Take a listen to the full summer evening playlist HERE, and then share your own playlist ideas in the comments.
