Robi Rosa - "Madre Tierra"

Unfortunately, he’s best known as the guy who wrote “Livin’ la Vida Loca”, “Shake Your Bon-Bon”, “The Cup of Life”, and the infamous William Hung vehicle “She Bangs” for his former Menudo bandmate Ricky Martin. But Robi Rosa is much more than that: his album Vagabundo [Sony-1996] is a dark rock and roll masterpiece sung in Spanish and one of the best albums of the decade in any language.
(If Alice in Chains' Dirt had been made by a romantic junkie poet with a feel for psychedelia, it would probably sound like Vagabundo.)

Here he is rockin’ out to Vagabundo’s first single and one of my favorite songs of his: “Madre Tierra” (Mother Earth) from the recent live album/DVD Teatro.
