10 Latin Ballads to Make You Swoon

Classic boleros celebrate the magic, mystery and melodrama of love

Vicentico Valdés

Envidia is on the album Vicentico Valdés, La Voz Elástica de Cuba.

Envidia (Envy)

Vicentico Valdés

Boleros are based on excesses, with volcanic, uncontrollable feelings. They tell legendary stories of hopeless love. Restraint is their enemy. Few boleros express this esthetic with the conviction of "Envidia." Boleros, more than any other musical genre, have given composers — and performers — the liberty to explore obscure, obsessive, unexpected territories. Such is the case of Vicentico Valdés, born in Havana in 1921. He collaborated with Sonora Matancera, the pianist Noro Morales and Tito Puente. With time, the bolero became his favorite genre.
