Music is one of my greatest pleasures. I enjoy almost all types, and in Merida we are fortunate to have access to so many live concerts. Music is to be found on every corner. You hear guitar most of all…
That makes me happy because the it is probably my favorite instrument. It can sound good even when played by unaccomplished musicians. And when I hear a really excellent guitar player, there’s nothing better. There are so many levels to it.
And guitar blends so well with the Spanish language.
It is easy to download music but when I find a CD I really love, I buy it. And I have one to highly recommend: PAPITWO, compiled by Miguel Bosé.
His parents were a famous Spanish bullfighter and an Italian actress, and he grew up among such personalities as Ernest Hemmingway and Pablo Picasso. He recorded his first album in 1975, and has not looked back. More than 14 million of his records have been sold in Spain, Italy and Latin America.
In this new one Miguel Bosé sings duets with Juanes, Alejandro Sanz, Tiziano Ferro, Joaquin Sabina, Penelope Cruz and Natalie Lafourcade, among others. You can purchase two different versions of Papitwo. One has 14 tracks; the other has 28. Buy the 28.
Most of Miguel Bosé’s songs are accompanied by strong guitar. And even if you don’t understand Spanish, the rhythm and the sensuous melody will sweep you along… The CD is so good that you won’t want to hear it as background, you´ll want to pour a glass of wine and sit down to listen and enjoy.
