New Year's Music

If you are lucky enough to be in Colombia on New Year's Eve, what you will hear is a LOT of music. But, no matter what you happen to be listening to during the evening, at five minutes to 12, you will hear a song called:

Cinco Pa' Las 12 by Nestor Zabarce.

Hear a sample of this song at the following place.



The other song you will inevitably hear is:

El Año Viejo by Tony Camargo



Both songs are also available at i Tunes for .99 cents each. Another great Colombian music purchase and addition to your Año Nuevo festivities.

Happy New Year!

Thank you for taking the time to put this blog together. I enjoy reading it and we are slowly beginning to incorporate Colombian culture into our home as we prepare to adopt from Colombia. I really appreciate all of your work. The information is great!

Those two songs make me cry! Those are my dad's favorite songs in New Years Eve.

Our radios play this poem: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=spL-CIvVbwI Do they have it in Colombia too?

Nancy and Talley,

Thank you for your comment. In answer to your question, our family (I have asked them) is NOT familiar with the poem. But, you are right, the poem is nice. Where did you first hear it?
