Thread Name: How to learn a song in another language?
Subject: RE: How to learn a song in another language?
Stim: Probably because of the image that it evokes. It was a common standard for Desi Arnaz and was originally done by Miguelito Valdes, who got his start singing in Havana nightclubs. It's basically a cabaret standard.

Can you tell me what songs the people you knew did? I'd like to learn some Afro-Cuban songs.

Gibb Sahib: Thanks!
