One of world biggest salsa-hits, well definitely Willie’s biggest. The songs falls in between genres of salsa romantica and salsa dura. Somehow it just works. Willie’s arrangement is sparse, catchy and ground-breaking at the same time. Idolio’s Mambo caused hundreds of arrangers to use similar breaks in their mambo’s.
The song features two singers in a marvellous “counterpoint”-style arrangement which makes this song a real pearl.
