Proving to be a connoisseur of Latin music including artists like Mala Rodríguez, Manu Chao and La Sonora Carruseles in his annual playlists, President Barack Obama also showcased and celebrated Latin culture music alongside superstars such as Juanes and Maná who performed during various occasions at the White House throughout his eight-year presidency, which will come to an end on Friday (Jan. 20).
