amparito (part 1)


Here is a song I love for many reasons.

Amparito by La Superbanda


Foreigner goes to Barranquilla, falls in love with a beautiful woman on the dance floor, she disappears, and now he’s looking for her all over Colombia to marry her.

There’s a funny version of this song by Don Medardo y sus Player’s where she whispers in his ear: “you ecuadorians have some game in your hips!” I have to wonder, are you in on the joke, Medardo? I have nothing but love for you guys, but I have to break it to you: a barranquillera who says that is messing with you.
