Spanish/English songstress Lourdes Pita shows us another great Latin track. Her version of “Lamento Cubano” is an excellent composition showcasing her strengths as an artist. This rendition of Toña la Negra’s song perfectly captures the emotional highs and lows of the original. Her voice is impressive and resonates through the track, accompanied by instrumentals adept at setting the tone.
Having started music at a young age, Lourdes Pita picked up a guitar and learned Spanish and English folk songs from her mother, the acclaimed Cuban poet Juana Rosa Pita. She has years of experience performing and recording music and has developed a unique style consisting of folk-rock and Latin jazz.
The guitar and piano come together in perfect harmony with the soft rhythm of the drums to create a sound that draws the listener in. Lourdes Pita’s vocals perfectly capture the tone of the song, drifting from a homesick longing to warm nostalgia.
