Help! The Cuban song in "Dance with Me" ...

#1
Chayanna and Vanessa Williams dance in a club to this song -- sounds like the lyrics say "Mi morena..."? I was looking at the titles on the soundtrack online and none of them seem to fit the song -- what IS that SONG? And who is singing it?

Thank you! =)

If you are talking about the song played at the end of the film, after the comp, it doesn't seem to be on the soundtrack album.
I recognised it as a different version of Salsa Celtica's "Ave Maria De Escocia".
See http://www.dance-forums.com/md.php?mode0=viewsong&u=254 or, if the clip URL link here doesn't work, try http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/t...104-7892570-2215122?v=glance&s=music&n=507846.
I think "De Escocia" is a cover version of a song called "Ave Maria Morena" -- see http://www.towerrecords.com/product.aspx?pfid=2888274.

If you are talking about the earlier club scene (with rueda dancing), I can't remember the song used there... :oops:

It's "Lindo Yambu" (Beautiful Yambu) by Cachao. Most of the cuban music was provided by Cachao. There are are two songs from Dance With Me on his Master Session Volume I CD. Lindo Yambu and Descarga Cachao.

Sample clips are here :arrow: Cacho

You know what, for the life of me I don't understand why they included Suavemente and Pantera En Libertad. Those two songs were totally out of place and not a part of the movie. Well, I do remember. Sony's newest artist and they wanted to promote them. Yeah, so why not promote Cachao. :roll:

Thanks, MacMoto& peachexploration- I think you're right -- it sounds rather like the ones you mention -- so strange that it wasn't on the sountrack...

Best,
Melissa
