Day 29: Te Ves Buena

I couldn’t find much information about Grupo Mayor, but I do know that the song Te Ves Buena was written by Panamanian reggae artist Edgardo Franco, aka El General. Although reggae en español had been around for a while, El General had scored one of its first international hits with this dancehall tune. When I lived in Nicaragua in the early 90′s, this form of early reggaeton was blowing up all over Central America. There probably wasn’t one country where I didn’t hear this song or ones like it - even Banda Vallarta Show did their own banda version. On a side note, I did recall that reggae en español would only be played at house parties after the parents left or weren’t around. As insinuated by my cousins,  the music may have been too risque in Nicaragua for the time - I never understood that one.

Anyway, just wanted to thank everyone who helped out with the February 45 sessions: Adam Dunbar, Marcos Juarez, Eamon Ore-Giron, Oliver Wang, Alex LaRotta, and Cameron Thompson – thanks a ton guys!!! Gonna talk a break from the site for a while, but if you need anything at all please feel free to bother me – sonidofranko@gmail.com. Enjoy!
