10 Latin Ballads to Make You Swoon

Classic boleros celebrate the magic, mystery and melodrama of love

Los 10 mejores boleros

En español  | Boleros are eternal. With their tales of passion and falling-outs, boleros could easily be dismissed as cliché love songs. But they refuse to be so commonly treated, and they have remained captivating throughout the decades, thanks to their Afro-Cuban roots: the rhythmic beats of percussion, the refined melodies of the piano or the requinto guitar, the saxophones, trumpets and trombones. The bolero was born in Cuba. It grew and was worshipped in Mexico. From there, it spread through all Latin America, thanks to the great number of singers who succumbed to its charm. More than any other genre, boleros possess a youthful energy, a charm that remains fresh and compelling through the years. In celebration of boleros, we have selected 10 songs that represent the magic and diversity of styles that this genre has to offer.
