President Barack Obama once again proved his great taste in music, releasing two summer playlists while he vacations on Martha’s Vineyard with the first family.

Obama’s playlists — one curated for daytime and one for nighttime — feature music from a wide range of singers and genres, including the quintessential Brazilian artist Caetano Veloso singing Cucurrucucu Paloma. This is a version of the song composed by Mexican musician Tomás Méndez, which became famous worldwide in Caetano’s voice through the movie Talk to Her (2002), directed by Pedro Almodóvar.

Great choice, @POTUS!
