Mambo Del Ruletero – Great Dance Sequence from the “Epoca de Oro”

A wonderful dance sequence from the film La Reina del Mambo from 1950

Amandititita – An Acoustic Peformance

I’ve been mesmerized for years by this diminutive performer who sings outrageously funny songs about ordinary people and their idiosyncrasies… all to a cheesy but hypnotic cumbia beat.

I just found this unplugged, gentler version of one of her well-known songs, with only herself, a guitar and an accordion.
