Let's have fun and learn Spanish and its culture through its songs together!
(Intermediate level)

    What do these songs and their singers have in common? "La Bamba" by Los Lobos, "Pedro Navaja" by Rubén Blades, "El Rey" by José Alfredo Jiménez, and "Me llamas" by José Luis Perales. No less than considering them as some essential classics and true celebrities in the world of Spanish and its culture. Therefore, through our course, I invite you to discover together beyond the interesting stories and anecdotes behind these singers and their songs.
