Music & Food: Weekly Playlist

By Marcus Samuelsson | October 26, 2010

I have many passions in life and one essential one for me is music. It inspires me and, depending on the song, brings me back to experiences I’ve had throughout my life.

It also connects people throughout the world. Aside from food, I don’t know many things that can create such a powerful link.

Music was a very important part of my upbringing and still plays a key role in my world today. Because of this, every Wednesday, I’m excited to bring you playlists consisting of different songs and genres that are striking a chord with me (pun intended).

This week, here’s a list of some of my favorite hip hop and reggae songs, direct from Sweden. Join me every week and listen to my faves!
