TUNES FOR TUESDAY -- Los Sabanales
I was preparing to make the connection between Fania, Fuentes and Colombian Salsa, and to finally make sense of all the stuff we have been discussing, when I received a request for this song. It is also by the Corraleros de Majagual. Colombians in their forties (and older) will remember it as a perennial classic in our collective Christmas Music playlist. This genre exhausted its coolness a while ago, so younger Colombians will deny recognizing this song. The truth is: not only do they recognize it, but have danced to it at more than one party, most likely around 3 am when everyone was taking a break from dancing to the faster rhythms.
