  4. what about some songs from Cuba? They have excellent songs and music! In addition as the other comment mentioned,I would like to have the lyrics to this song.I could not find in online dictionary the meaning of some titles here…

    • Hi Fatemeh! Thanks for commenting! Bebo Valdés, the pianist in the last track was actually Cuban! He was amazing 🙂 (The album was recorded in Spain, though.) But, yes, there is a lot of great music played and recorded in the island!

      Regarding the lyrics, unfortunately we cannot post them here because of copyright issues, but I’m sure you can find good translations of some of them if you do a search on Google. Hope this helps!
