    I just went to the link and didn't see the article on finding the beat . . . any more specific directions on where it is?

    Sensual Rumba Music

    For some good vocal rumba music you may like to give the following a try:

    Luis Miguel - Links to Amazon below:

    I have a small selection of Amazon music links on my website:

    One of my favorite albums is Alejandro Fernandez - Me Estoy Enamorando :) This album features a duet with Gloria Estefan.

    I second that. Krall has a very sensual voice. Also by Diana Krall, "Besame Mucho". Her version is amazing.
    I also highly reccomend "Piensa En Mi". Very nice.

    Piensa En Mi is great. Wish it were just a little slower ... but I'm tempted to go with it anyway for my performance.
    Thanks for the pointer, Elena.

    It's an amazing song, but it's not at all a Rumba...
    Personally, I like more latino/cuban rumbas, like Piensa en mi and Besame Mucho (or African Tango - a kill!). The english songs don't appeal to me all that much for this particular dance.

    Two people you might try: An artist named Jose Jose has incredibly romantic music.

    Also, there is a group called Gotan that does modernized "Tango" music. They are used on the soundtrack of "Shall We Dance" American version. The music is not so specifically tango and much of it has a good beat to dance Rhumba too. My favorite version of "Sway," by the way, is on the soundtrack to Dark City.

    Hmmm... Why isn't our Music Directory filled up with the songs we occasionally reccomend? We should try to gather up all different suggested songs and fit them into the proper categories, non?

    This is an old thread, so apologies if bringing it back ruffles any feathers - let me know!

    I've found these two to be easy enough to rumba to:

    Dire Straits - So Far Away
    The Four Tops - Reach Out, I'll Be There

    I may be wrong, but So Far Away seems to me to be particularly easy to dance to! Has anyone else any comments on these two?

    Oooh, I'm glad this thread has been revived, I've found some beauuutiful rumbas lately! :D
    Manana Si - Jose Jose
    Para toda la vida - Rocio Durcal
    No se porque te quiero - Ana Belen & Antonio Banderas (I am in love with this one!)
    Tu Amor - Jon B
    Donde esta tu amor - Son by Four
    Bella Maria de mi Alma - Antonio Banderas (from "The Mambo Kings")

    Pretty classic, too; most of them are our DJ's regulars.

    Save a Prayer by Simon Lebon; Sylvio Anastacio on Samba Sunset. It's got a soft tropical rthymn and the lyrics. Just think off it I get lost in a day dream.

    "The Ultimate Latin Album 4". It can also be found in "Mirame" by Ana Belen.

    I love the rumba Slavik and Karina danced to at 2004 world superstars. It is called Quando Te Besso. Does anyone know who does it or where to find it?

    It's been a while, and I'm looking for new ideas, so...


    Any ideas for rumba music?
