Bemba Colora

Bemba Colorá

Let's talk today about the song Bemba Colorá, composed by the Cuban musician and composer José Claro Fúmero. José Claro was born in Matanzas in 1906 and was the arranger of most of the Afro-Cuban music in the repertoire of the famous Cuban orchestra La Sonora Matancera. However, it is likely that you recognize this song, not because of its composer, but because of the most famous singer who performed it: the great Afro-Cuban artist Celia Cruz, the queen of salsa, who in her long career performed a great number of songs that honor Afro-Cuban culture and its various religious practices.
