Ramon’s first review

I received the book from the Library thing offer and once I downloaded it to my Kindle I started reading it I was so held by the format and detail that I was unable to put the book down until I had completely read the book. This book held me from the first page until the very end.

Mexican Bolero Composers

Some of the more popular boleros, or Spanish love ballads, composed in the last hundred years originated in Cuba and Mexico. The genre has evolved with each generation rediscovering the melancholic feelings central to the lyrics and melody, thanks to the voices of new interpreters capable of bringing the mostly dated repertoire of songs back to life.


Thanks to Social Media sites like YouTube, talented composers and performers are just a click a way. Given the complimentary words and performance this talented guitarist pays to bolerista Armando Manzanero, audiences will continue to discover los boleros for years to come.
