BOSSA CUBANA By LOS ZAFIROS October 17, 2011

Filed under: 1960s,Zafiros — spanishpoplyrics @ 1:34 pm

Los Zafiros (The Sapphires) were a Cuban vocal group active in the mid-sixties. Though inspired by American doo-wop groups (check out the intro!), they also incorpated Latin rhythms into their sound.This joyful mix led to huge success at home and a succesful tour of Europe.

More recently, they’ve been the subject of the documentary ‘Music From The Edge Of Time’ (which is a bit maudlin unfortunately).

There’s also a link to the last post, because another of their songs (‘He Venido’) has been featured in the TV show ‘Breaking Bad’.

BOSSA CUBANA

Sabadabadaba
Papapapada
Bossa nova, ven... 

Cubanita primorosa,
Juguetona y deliciosa
Bossa cubana
Cuando asoma en la mañana
tu sonrisa de La Habana
Bossa cubana
Con tu suave movimiento
tan ligero como el viento
Bossa cubana
Que me excita y me fascina
Que me lleva y me domina
Bossa cubana 

Como noche luminosa
de esta tierra tan hermosa
Bossa cubana
Como el beso de una moza,
coquetona y amorosa
Bossa cubana
Hay sabor y melodía
tiene fuego y alegría
Bossa cubana
Tiene un ritmo que arrebate
Esta samba que me llega al corazón
CUBAN BOSSA

Sabadabadaba
Papapapada
Bossa nova, come ... 

Gorgeous Cuban girl,
Playful and delicious
Cuban Bossa
When you break into a smile
in the Havana morning
Cuban Bossa
With your gentle movements
as light as the breeze
Cuban Bossa
That excite and fascinate me
That lead me and take me over
Cuban Bossa

Like the bright night
of this beautiful land
Cuban Bossa
Like the kiss of a girl,
coquettish and loving
Cuban Bossa
There’s flavour and melody
It’s got fire and joy
Cuban Bossa
It’s got a rhythm that captivates you
This samba that leads my heart
