la Malagueña from tucson

this was recorded in Tucson at La Fuente, a Mexican restaurant my parents have been taking me and my sisters to since we were children.

La Malagueña also happens to be my favorite Mexican tune and in honor of my ancestors’ independence day, enjoy.

  1. Love the security guard waving in the background. Never heard the song.

  2. In honor of your ancestors’ history, Cinco de Mayo is a celebration of the battle at Puebla in 1862 where 4,500 Mexican militia defeated 6,500 French troops sent to take land in response to Mexico’s refusal to repay their debt to France. Independence from Spain happened on September 16, 1821.

    As an additional note, the French sent 30,000 troops back to Mexico a year later and took over rule of the country for 3 years until the United States helped them expel the French rulers.
