Can you dance the Salsa? Classic India & Tito Nieves, “No Me Conviene”

“…Latin music is so positive, festive and optimistic. Its is made of what the USA and, indeed the world needs more of these days…”

I grew up with radio in New York City; I went to school (the right way) integrated with European Caucasians, Puerto Ricans, Dominicans (unknown to me when I was little) and other black American descendants of American slaves – there was no such thing as an “African-American” back then, by the way; they had not been allowed to assault into our shores – we had a good mix in the 1960s and 1970s!

Now that I am decluttering and finding past memories of my DJ life, I’ve discovered and am -among others – reliving the musical magic of the Bronx!

The title of this song means – according to your dialect – “That doesn’t suit me”, or ‘Its not worthy for me”. Please correct me in the comments section, if I’m off-base. Language and linguistics is king to cohesion.

Irregardless, Latin music is so positive, festive, inclusive and optimistic. Its is made of what the USA and, indeed the world needs much more of these days!

Again I implore you to disconnect from the negative #cableTV #24hour news, in-favor of quieting your mind into the peace our parents raised in us, please. Whatever will BE, will be.

Please remember to flash back to our mothership connection blog, achilliad.wordpress.com, where silence is avoiding negativity.

The Hope of Earth Wind & Fire’s “Beauty”of 1972 still Applies, unfortunately & hopefully for mankind’ sake.

“You know it troubles my mind
These troubled times we need love
The world needs love, let there be love
Open up your heart and love more open up…”

Beauty

Earth, Wind & Fire

Oh when I look around me
This old world seems so troubled to me

Does no one see
The beauty that surrounds them?
Take a look around you now (sometimes)
Pretty little blossoms, oh yeah
Just as sweet as can be, yeah yeah

it troubles my mind
These troubled times we need love
You know it troubles my mind
These troubled times we need love
The world needs love, let there be love
Open up your heart and love more open up
Open up your heart and love more open up
Open up your heart and love more open up
Open up your heart, give a little love
love, love, love, love

Does no one see
The beauty that surrounds them?
Take a look around you now (sometimes)
Pretty little blossoms, oh yeah
Just as sweet as can be, yeah yeah

It troubles my mind
These troubled times

We need love, love, love, yeah

It troubles my mind
These troubled times
