Turn Up the Heat With Argentina’s and Brazil’s 2024 Songs of Summer

From December to March, as people across the Southern Hemisphere soak up the summer, music often emerges as a powerful representation of a region’s cultures and customs.

This summer, music in Argentina and Brazil reflected each country’s rich cultural diversity. From the infectious vibes of cuarteto to the catchy rhythms of cumbia and the far-reaching sounds of trap and funk music, Spotify served as the main stage for fans to discover and enjoy the hottest hits.
