La canción de la semana #200

Yes, 200th — let's celebrate! This week, it is the song I can't get out of my head: an absolutely smashing performance of Mandinga by great Rubén González (1919—2003). The refrain "quiquiribú mandinga" is identical to that in La negra Tomasa. But listen carefully and you'll hear much more. Among other songs that González quotes is Очи чёрные (at about 5:10).
