Bebo San Juan La vuelta al mundo


I was born in Havana, and although I have travelled a lot and made the customs of other cultures my own; my home has been a perfect symbiosis between Spain and Cuba. When I was a child, Fabada and Congrí coexisted perfectly, guaracha and sevillanas, Beny Moré and Miguel de Molina. Whenever I listened to el Bárbaro del Ritmo, I thought: that man must be a happy man. Those songs can only be born from happiness. If we link this idea to the adagio that reminds us that it is better to go to bed without eating than to wake up in debt, these songs fulfill a promise to my mother, Rita, and Aruca. Here I offer these songs, which are the fruits of happiness.
