La bamba

CLICK ON THE IMAGE TO LISTEN TO LA BAMBA – LILA DOWNS

This is a view of the Teide, the highest peak –and volcano– in Spain, took a couple of weeks ago. The Filomena left it covered by snow just a few days after. I have chosen the song of La Bamba because listening to Lila Downs always cheers me up and so does visiting the Teide.

This La Bamba is, undoubtedly, my favourite version of the song, which has many others. In fact, it is one of these themes that have seen changed its lyrics and music arrangements depending on the message transmitted by the performer. Subtle variations as the the wish of become a sailor, a captain or neither of them can be found in the many versions of the Mexican original song.

Hope you enjoy it!
