Cuando te miro, a ti
Lindos colores, oh si
Te mueves tan dulce
Solo por vivir

Cuando te miro, a ti
Lindos colores, Oh si
Te mueves tan dulce
Solo por vivir

Ah bailare
Hasta al amanecer, contigo
Oh dando vueltas
Bailare hasta al amanecer

Eres curiosa, lo sé
Como una gitana,
En el aire, belleza humilde
Lo haces sin saber, ah

Ah bailare
Hasta al amanecer, contigo
Oh dando vueltas oh
Bailare hasta al amanecer

Con tu energía
Puedes hacerme sentir tan libre
Me mueve contigo
Sin como ni porque

Con tu energía
Puedes hacerme sentir tan libre
Me mueve contigo
Sin como ni porque, ah

Ah bailare
Hasta al amanecer contigo
Oh dando vueltas
Bailare hasta al amanecer

Oh dando vueltas, dando vueltas
Contigo contigo contigo oh
Oh hasta el amanecer

Every time I hear the intro I think it's going to be a latin take on Backstreet's Back. Only me? Sorry. It's very nice though.

Love this song.
So cool.. reminds me of a very very good time in my life with a beautiful young woman...no money but rich in warm evenings, paraffin lamps and very sexy dancing. 
We had this CD and not much else.

I'd go back like a shot....
A mi me encanta esta música tan dulce😌
¡A mí me gusta!

Not understanding the lyrics doesn't prevent me from getting the very cool vibe of this tune.  
Sweet Dreams Are Made Of This... 
Wow, they are from my not so humble burg! You gotta love the diversity of New York City, baby! Have to go catch them when the clubs and bars open up again.
Pretty sure the first time i ever heard this song was on RP, and now its one of my favorite Latin songs. Thanks Bill!
Breakin' up, it's easy to do
Breakin' up, it's easy to do

Como se dice "AWESOME." Brilliant. First listen. What a voice! I don't usually ken to the Cuban rhythms but slowed down it's stunning. Gracias.
 
Agreed. I'm not normally drawn to the Latin styles, but I'm digging the groove here. Solid 7 from me.
I was thinking this might be BVSC covering 7 nation army....   :O

So what is the significance of Putumayo in the context of Cuba?

In Colombia the Putumayo district lies on the southern border with Ecuador.  The region produces oil and in the past coca.   FARC-EP and other cocaine-dependent thugs are highly active in the area.   

US sponsored Plan Colombia has been successful in eradicating coca plantations and putting lots of unskilled Colombians out of work.
 
Putumayo is a record label, specializing in world-music collections. This is from one of those.
  makes me want to dance
 I dig it.

I mean, yes it's OK in a chillout kind of salsa/son, kind of way, but it's bland. I would encourage RP to look for less makeup...La Fania All Stars is a good place to start.
Wow! First time hearing ths.

Really caught my attention, though that's what I've come to expect of RP.

Bill, Rebecca?: Thank you.... :)

I love this! Always reminds me of some of Mecano's songs. Also reminds me of dancing the nights away at Cafe Havana in Cartagena.
This is absolutely magnificent. I love the vocalist in particular!

Putumayo is also the name of a record label which releases compilations of different types of "international" music.
I would do a Samba or Cha Cha to this.

i was told once that most of the songs from Spanish speaking Caribbean region with lyrics about 'Mariposa's' are actually related to Mirabal Sisters, known as Mariposa's, who opposed the dictatorship of Rafael Trujillo in Dominican Republic.

My subwoofer loves this song - very deep bass rocking the building. Amazing.
