La Paloma is a song written by Basque composer Sebastian de Iradier during his stay in Cuba, and is one of the most famous song of the genre Habanera. Become a standard of international music, it was performed and then recorded by several artists. In recent times it has been sung, among others, the singer of Latin music Anacani. Even the great Francisco Tarrega has made an arrangement for classical guitar to La Paloma that sounding very romantic.
If you like latin music played with classical guitar, let me also suggest you “A Mixolydian Samba“, a composition of mine. Thank you.
