Discussion in 'Ballroom Dance' started by NeoDevin, Nov 24, 2003.
My dillema today: "Abrazame" by Tamara or by Luis Miguel? Totally different styles...
By Giannis Poulopoulos!
Mark, you seriously scare me. Please tell me there's no such version...
(why aren't you at the party?)
Well, there is the epic Greek cover that is "Agapa me".
Too tired to party today. Will go to Dance Fever on Friday and
Chicaboom on Saturday though to get my fix.
Btw, why aren't you online?
Avoiding some people, for many different reasons.
Yikes. "Agapa Me". Just remembered. :shock:
Avoiding moi too?
Too bad... Miss our latin gossip...
And I've gathered quite some goodies to send ya.
Ah well, I guess you'll manage just fine without them!
Not avoiding you. Avoiding five other people. You tempt me with goodies, though. Evil! So I will go online, but if anyone bugs me it's all your fault!
Does anyone know the rumba music Telona/Carolina Felippe danced to in 2006 Ohio Star Ball, which was televised by PBS on ast Wednesday. I find it witchingly beautiful.
Did you know ?-- Besame Mucho, was voted on by ( latino ) musicians, this was eons ago, as the worst rumba ever written !!-- I dont remember why .
Here you go!
No one has mentioned "Les Feuillers Mortes" (The Autumn Leaves) sung by Andrea Bocelli in French. Slavik and Elena danced Rumba on this song in 2007 The World Super Stars Dance Festival. I played this Rumba in a studio, people stopped what they were doing to watch it, and they were mesmerized by the dance and the song. You can download this song from Amazon at 0.99 - well worth it.
I also remember it by Stan Kenton
Chris Issak, "Wicked Game".
Rhythm and Latin Rumbas
Some of my favorites:Rhythm and Latin tempos
Begin the Beguine by Sheryl Crow
Temptation by Diana Krall
Bolero de Luna Alberto Taurini
Soledad by Pink Martini (with long first part removed)
La Nave de Olvido(from the Lolita Cabana album)
Quiereme Mucho (from the Cuban Shinga ling album)
I like Eva Cassidy's version best. I swear I get goosebumps when I hear her voice.
Edit: Listened to Bocelli's version and it sounds NOTHING like the one I know in English.
Can you dance on Eva Cassidy's Autumn Leaves, Rumba show dance, for instance?
Not only can you dance a Rumba to it, but Sergei and Melia did at the 2006 Superstars.
Now, I have to buy 2006 Superstars; there is no end.
As far as I can tell, unlike the Bocelli's version, Cassidy's version does not have the Rumba beats or any distinct dance beats. A famous couple also did a Rumba showdance on Cassidy's version at OSB on Sat. Because there is no distinct beats I can hear, I believe that one can do any dance, including Tango and Paso, on this song. I alwayswanted to do Bolero shpwcase on Pavarotti's "Nessun Dorma," but it has been impossible for a novice dancer like myself because this aria does not have the Bolero beats. I guess just do the bolero when the song plays. The judges will have no way of knowing whether we are on the beats oroffthe beats.
I am bumping this thread again cause it's time for my dh & I to pick music for a rumba rountine...
I love Wicked Game too...
Chris Isaak also has a nice versiion of Besame Mucho except he sings it in English.. Its on my list too!!
Some others i am considering and will get final ok from our teacher when she is back from her holiday...
Sad Eyes - Enrique Eglasias
When You Say Nothing AT All - Alison Krause
It's not Goodbye - Laura Pausini
Stickwitu - Pu$$ycat Dolls
You Belong To Me - Jason Wade (from the movie Shrek)
