This is a song that you’ll find the melody familiar even if you aren’t up to speed in Latin genres of music. It was everywhere in the US a few years ago because it was in Jennifer Lopez’s “On the Floor”. The infectious melody is like 30-some-odd years old though.
I hear the song played at parties here randomly but I’d never seen the video until just now. And I don’t know what about the video got me but it’s so… lovely. Take a look and tell me what you think!
There’s also a fascinating history about the origin of this rhythm that you can check out here..
