Peret — Gitana Hechicera

Second Chance Week

Sooo I’ve never been a fan of rumba. In fact I hated it. I was anti-rumba. All my friends loved it, and I wasn’t in the same vibe. 

But somehow this changed and I didn’t even realized, I can listen to some Catalan rumba and actually enjoy it.

Catalan rumba was born in Barcelona by the hand of the Romani community in the 50s. Peret was one of the pioneers in this style, and has songs that won’t let me stop moving, and keep a smile in my face, because they are almost always positive lyrics, and so was he. Peret passed away last month, but I’m sure their songs will keep playing at parties for many years to come.

Hope you enjoy,
