Ladama Project

Hi everyone!!!

I hope you like this video and learn some Colombian culture, I will leave several links so you can understand the beat and context of bullerengue and also the tonada lyrics and a translation.


El loro y la lora
estaban loreando (x2)
y yo por la reja
estaba mirando (x2)
trabaja, trabaja compañero trabaja (x2)
Azúcar me llamo yo, azúcar (x2)
Azúcar, azucara´, azúcar (x2)

In English:

The parriot and the female parriot were talking (chating) (x2)
and I was looking throug the grating (x2)
work, work fellow work (x2)
my name is sugar, sugar (x2)
sugar, sugar, sugar (x2)
