Spanish music

In this thread we can share and discuss music performed in the Spanish language!
Feel free to share videos, audio or simply the names of artists/bands/songs. The songs can be from any genre of Spanish music.

Personally I love listening to Spanish language music, and it was my love of the music which was originally the main inspiration in my choice to embark on learning Spanish.
I also find music a great and fun way to assist in learning languages.

So, I’ll start this thread off with a couple of beautiful songs.

Colgando en tus manos - Carlos Baute y Martha Sanchez

Bailando - Enrique Iglesias ft. Gente De Zona y Descemer Bueno

Hi!

It’s a good initiative, I think I can contribute to this thread (I’m Spanish :sweat_smile:)

It’s better with lyrics, right?

Two examples of easy listening IMHO:

Izal - Copacabana

This song is already 20 years old…:scream: In this canción, I think one can hear so clearly that Enrique learned from su padre!

Great song contributions everyone! I’m loving hearing all your music choices.

Following in from dee’s choice above…
A rock ballad by Maná. I love this song. It’s called ‘En el muelle de san blas’.

Ay ay ay, creo que esa es la canción más emocionante de Enrique, ‘su voz está llorando’. :cry: :hearts: También una vieja canción

My music teacher introduced me to Latin American music when I was a child, and he used to dance exhibition tangos with his wife in the small town I grew up in, but it was NEVER like that!!

This is a scene from a movie, and they have dance teachers, choreographers, directors, camera - and light guys, cutters - a whole team that makes sure everything looks fantastic and breathtakingly larger than life. And - and this is the most important reason - it’s Señor Antonio Banderas! :dancer::kissing_heart:

Something tells me you’re a bit of a fan of Señor Banderas :smile:

Oh, yes, I’ve always adored him very much! Now, that Melanie Griffith was crazy enough to let him go…here I am…:innocent: :wink:
