Canción de la Semana: “Vivo La Vida” por Olga Tañon

In Spanish class, we are just beginning a chapter that focuses on Cuba. With all of the recent developments between Cuba and the U.S., I thought this song was just perfect to help me introduce the chapter.

Here’s what I like about “Vivo La Vida”:

  1. Cuba: It’s awesome to give kids the possibility of seeing into a country that before we didn’t have much information about. The video is set up like a documentary / news clip, so it’s neat to see local musicians, dancers (and even antique cars) in Havana.
  2. Merengue: Great music/dancing.
  3. An Optional Accompanying Article: Here’s an article People En Español did about the making of the video.
