La canción de la semana #122

This week's song Te la dejo toda is performed by José Manuel Cobles aka Puerto Plata, a veteran of the guitar tradition of the Dominican Republic. It is taken from 84-year old singer's debut (!) solo album Mujer de Cabaret.

    Me preguntas por ella,
    ¿Yo que puedo decirte
    Si a mí ya no me sirve
    Y yo ya la olvidé?
    ¿Que te puede importar
    Lo que vivió conmigo?
    Hoy vive contigo,
    Ya la conocerás

    Te la dejo toda
    Con todos sus defectos y sus modos
    Conmigo ya su cuerpo no acomodo
    Resultan sus caricias un estorbo

    Te la dejo toda
    De pies a la cabeza es toda tuya
    No creas que te lo digo por orgullo
    Lo mismo a otro más le diría.

La canción de la semana #121

Last.fm is a very cool internet radio. First, you do not have to register to listen to it. Second, if you do, it will track what kind of music you are listening to and will create personalised "radio station" for you. Third, you can share your tastes with your friends. (Well I am trying to do this last part with our blog anyway.) This week's song is A Dios Le Pido by Colombian superstar Juanes.

La canción de la semana #120

I have never been a big fan of Gloria Estefan, but after listening to No Llores I am about to become... well at least the fan of her latest (all-Spanish) album, 90 Millas. (Yes it has Carlos Santana playing.) I hope you enjoy this music.

La canción de la semana #119

As usual, I was looking (without success) for something unrelated on the web when I came across the website of Seattle-based sax player Layla Angulo. Her band is cookin'! This week's song is La Noche del Tambor from Layla's album Live at The Triple Door.
