February is one of our favorite months at Cancion Mexicana. Roses, chocolates, and Valentine’s Day are a perfect combination. This year Cancion Mexicana will celebrate romance with the centuries-old musical style known as the Bolero.

The Boleros we know today originated in Cuba in the late 19th century and later became even more popular in Mexico during the Golden Age of Mexican Cinema in the 1940s and 1950s. The Bolero’s timeless style has become synonymous with love and romance.

On Valentine’s Day Eve, we will celebrate love through the music of some of the icons of this musical genre including Trio Los Panchos, Javier Solis, Eydie Gorme, Vicki Carr, and others.

Later in the show, we will enjoy today’s musical interpretations of some of these memorable love songs.

Your Valentine’s Day will be filled with the old standards like Historia de un Amor and Amorcito Corazon as well as new stylings of Perfidia and Besame Mucho.  Your heart will be full with this perfect combination…love, music, and community.

“…Y si vivo cien anos, cien anos pienso en ti…”  “…and if I live to one hundred years…one hundred years I will think of you…” Cien Anos written by Rubén Fuentes and Alberto Cervantes.

Celebrate Valentines Day a day early when you tune in to Canción Mexicana on Sunday, February 13, from 9 am to 1 pm with host Debra Gallegos.
