The Monday travel song: No le tengo miedo by Los Aldeanos

I propose to start every new week with a song that takes us somewhere in the world.

If all is well, this Monday morning, I am travelling in Cuba, the Internet is scarce, and this pre-scheduled blog will also take you to Cuba, with No le tengo miedo by Los Aldeanos, a rap band from Cuba.

A quick overview of the lyrics:

Sigo escribiendo para mis hermanas y hermanos
sin perder la fe, en el mejoramiento humano
porque la vida, puede ser muy dura desde luego
pero yo reo en las almas buenas y no le tengo miedo

And a quick attempt at a translation:

I keep writing for my sisters and my brothers
Without losing faith in human betterment
Because life can be very hard indeed
But I believe in good souls and I don’t fear it [life]

Have a great week!

This post is part of a weekly event called The Monday Travel song. You can participate, too, by doing the following:

  • Create your own post every Monday and title it The Monday travel song: xxx by xxx
  • Include a link to a song (YouTube link or other)
  • It must be a song which is linked to a geography. For example, a Russian song, a Chinese song, a Scottish song… (it can be from your own country every now and then, but remember the purpose is to get others to virtually travel!)
  • Your post doesn’t have to be long, but do tell us a little bit about the song… for example by telling about the lyrics, about the composer, about the style…
  • Include a link to my own Monday travel song in your post tag it “Monday-travel-song” so others can find it too
