This beautiful song written by Colombian composer Jaime Leon, is a very lyric and romantic one. The poetry by Colombian Dora Castellanos (1924) is very romantic and describes the deep desire of an amorous encounter between a couple.
Born in Cartagena de Indias, Colombia on December 18, 1921, Leon is consider one of the most important Colombian composers of XX century. His songs are especially beautiful and adequate for the voice. In his music we can identify influences of Colombian folk rhythms, American music of the fifties and sixties, musical theater, Strauss... a very interesting collage of influences that make his music interesting and rich.
