- Viva La Música Latina celebrates the music of Latin America, which is truly a celebration of life itself.
Check out our whimsical bossa nova, "Cuchi FedEx Man".
"E Uma Carioca" provides music for girl-watching on the beaches of Rio de Janeiro.
"Por Qué No Te Callas?" ("Why Don't You Shut Up?"): A question uttered in desperation by Spanish King Juan Carlos I, directed toward Hugo Chávez at the closing of the 17th Ibero-American summit.
"Fique Tranquilo", spoken at the first sign of a stressful situation, is the Brazilian equivalent of the Aussies' "No Worries, Mate".
"Lembrar de Você" (Remembering You) celebrates old love, whereas "Gigolo Cubano" is a celebration of love for sale.
"Los Guaracheros" is a celebration of the music of Cuba. Guaracha, as perfected by the late Celia Cruz, eventually developed into the style of Latin music now known as "salsa".
"Meu São Paulo" is a gentle, nostalgic bossa nova that celebrates the magic of Brazil's largest city.
"Pois Não?" is a phrase that you might hear upon entering a shop in Brazil. Literally "Because No", this seemingly nonsensical phrase has come to mean "At Your Service". Com certeza!
"I'd Rather Be A Has-Been Than A Never Was" is a self-explanatory bossa nova tune.
The phrase "Y A Otra Cosa, Mariposa" is spoken when you want to ask someone politely to change the subject of a conversation.
Each of us can expect to encounter "Señor Moment" more frequently as we age.
