These four playlists will be updated regularly as Latin American content albums appear, always offering an updated view of the Latin American music scene.

- The four playlists represent composers from 16 Latin American countries: Argentina, Brazil, Bolivia, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Cuba, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, United States (Puerto Rico), Guatemala, Mexico, Paraguay, Peru, Uruguay and Venezuela.
- All four playlists will be available on the most frequently used platforms in Latin America: Spotify, Apple Music, Pandora, and YouTube.
