About the Album

This song was composed by Radeunda Lima, the 'queen of the Cuban radio', around the early '60s. The lyrics describe the beauty of the Cuban countryside. The song has elements of the country style 'punto guajiro', which includes a form of poetry called 'décima'. The jazzy arrangement by Marc Bischoff adds a rhythm called 'merensongo'.
