"Piensa En Mi" By Pedro Vargas

Most romantic music in Latin America is bolero-rumba,  just about the most beautiful music in the world today. Bolero is a slower version of the Rumba, also sexy and intriguing, the Bolero emphasizes the drama of love in a relationship.

There are two variations: the Cuban, predecessor of the International Style Rumba and closer to the real thing. And the American Bolero, which differs technically as well as in their rhythmical interpretations. The American seems to have evolved be more open and beautiful in exhibitions with experienced dancers.
