This alphabet comes Portugal.
Paulo wrote: “I’m not really a professional DJ, but I do DJ swing for our Lindy Hop community in Lisbon, Portugal. I’ve just published my take on the jazz alphabet, so I invite you to listen to it.
Hope you have as much fun listening to it as I did making it 😉
I did not look at the other playlists in order to avoid the songs being repeated. That would’ve been a bigger challenge, probably too big to handle!”
