Vereda Tropical (Tropical Lane)

Los Panchos with Eydie Gormé

It is impossible to a walk along the shore of any Caribbean country without thinking of the lyrics of "Vereda Tropical," written by Mexican composer Gonzalo Curiel Barba and interpreted by artists such as Toña La Negra, Javier Solís and even Henry Mancini. But none matches the tenderness and frankness of the musical collaboration between the trío Los Panchos and Eydie Gormé, an American singer of Turkish origins. Los Panchos are a real institution of boleros, pioneers of the caressing sounds of trios that so impacted the music of the 1950s. The high-pitched sound of the requinto and their harmonious voices were their main virtues. The added female voice was a wise move, particularly with Gormé's pure, delicious foreign accent.
