Dave Refusenik, grew up in Boston (from Moscow) but is currently living in Argentina. His mix features a bunch of artists from the emerging electronic/experimental cumbia scene in Buenos Aires, along with some of his favorite producers from Boston (DJ C, Baltimoroder) to Argentina (Oro11, El Hijo De La Cumbia, El Remolón, Daleduro). Honestly, any mix that throws in Shannon's Let the Music Play is alright in my book.
While we are on the topic of mixes and since holiday (house) parties are beginning to ramp up slowly, let me STRONGLY suggest to hosts if you do not have a dedicated playlist for the party and are letting iTunes Party Shuffle decide for you, play a mix like this instead. You are more likely to keep the party going instead of bringing it to a screeching halt when a guilty pleasure track (Shakira's Hips Don't Lie or Maybe Mark Anthony and J.Lo's latest duet) comes on and the crowd gasps and proceeds to file out the nearest door (drinks in hand of course). Leaving you to sort through the empty bottles, half drunk beers and used lime wedges sitting on your kitchen counter.
...And I'm on tonight... You know my hips don't lie...And I'm starting to feel it's righ...
Please. Be safe. Use a mix.

That reminds me, I have a some mate at home (mate cup and all) that I have never drank (drunk?) it. Here are some pics from around the city. Oh and I just realized that most of the visitors to the site might not know what the beauty of a parrillada is but it's basically an Argentinian barbeque (pic below). Everything from churrasco to chorizo to blood sausages (morcilla) to grilled chicken to sweet breads (trust me, it's not bread) is all grilled on an open flame using specific Argentinian firewood.Parrilla = grill
Parrillada = meat on the grill
And then there are the desserts. Let's just say three words: "dulce" "de" "leche". Okay I am beginning to sound like a travel guide.
