Thread Name: How to learn a song in another language?
Subject: RE: How to learn a song in another language?
Haruo, I now believe, with a high chance of accuracy, that the language is Sinhala, an Indo-Aryan language spoken widely in Sri Lanka.

This I discovered by simply clicking thru to the YouTube library of goonewj, who archives music that was broadcast on the Sinhala Commercial Service in the early 70's. Los Caballeros turn out not to be Cuban, but Sri Lankan. As to what goonewj and guitarmanaruna had to say, you may click thru to their YouTube libraries and contact them directly. One is in London, the other in the US, and both speak English fluently.

Morwen...-What kind of accompaniment are you looking for?
