Coma ama una mujer - Jennifer Lopez

Thought I would pass along the title of this album - it's my favorite so far in Spanish.

Of course, as Mauricio says in the course, "Sobre gustos, no hay nada escrito." :-)

I haven't heard that one yet, but I know that I'm not a fan of "She Wolf" by Shakira. Or I should probably say, "Loba" ;)

Thanks for sharing! :)

I like Mercedes Sosa; here's a Youtube link in case you'd like to listen to her:

She's not my favorite but I think she has a nice voice and great songs overall!

Cheers!

I will cast my vote for Gloria Estefan, No Llores

How many singers can get Carlos Santana and Jose Feliciano to back them up on the same song?

Hola a todos,

I don't recall how I first encountered the video of No Llores, but I do recall being knocked out by it and buying the album 90 Millas  right after.  As Marie has replied here, I hope it's okay to hijack this thread in the hope that she will see this and address Dan's grammar question about the subjunctive regarding :¡Esperemos que tenga buena voz!  and the use of "esperemos" as a trigger for the subjunctive.

Saludos,

Ricardo

Ricardo: I talked about "esperemos" with my tutor this week. We decided that it must be in the imperative. I will be interested in Marie's take on it as well.

Kelllaur - "Lobo" did not make my list either. Shakira does have some nice songs though. Here are a few that I like:
- Suerte
- Inevitable
- Tú

I also like "Waka Waka" but that doesn't go with the Spanish thing. I find the Samba beat quite uplifting!

Hola a todos,

Gracias por todas las respuestas, amigos. ¡Acuérdense sin embargo de que les dije “álbum” y no cantante ni canción!

Vi el otro día en veintemundos.com un artículo sobre Hernán Gamboa, quien tocaba en el pasado con Mercedes Sosa. De lo que entendí, ella fue de Argentina y creó composiciones musicales que son iconos de la cultura latina y era conocida como la voz de América cuando estaba viva.  Escuché la canción cuya mencionaste, Marie, y me pregunto si es eficazmente Hernán Gamboa que toca el cuatro con ella en la grabación.

Como cantante, me gusta mucho Marta Sánchez: Colgando en tus manos, Vivo por ella, Tarde, Algo así quiero yo (Enredados), Sueños de gloria, etc.

Me encanta la canción Suerte de Shakira por su “punch” latino que me parece arquetipo. Pero cuando escucho una canción como No llores – que dice “Cuba” desde la primera palabra – me pregunto si se puede hablar de una cadencia latina típica. 

All corrections are welcome!

Saludos,

Steven
