I'm so glad Bob made this post. His purpose was to show another way to learn Spanish. The video reminded me how much I really like this type of music, and in particular this Mexican artist. Jose Alfredo Jimenez was one of Mexico's shining stars, but sadly he died rather young at the age of 47. His music genre is known as 'ranchera' but also includes mariachi. What is awesome about him is that he had no musical training, yet composed more than a thousand songs! I grew up listening to his music. There is something so rustic and primitive about this sort of music that just speaks to the core of my heritage. I'm just going to share one of the many songs this singer/songwriter created. The difficult part was choosing which video to embed, since there were quite a lot of them.
Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. ~Philippians 4:8~
