While we were in Costa Rica we had church service about four times. Seems they like to have church about every other day. But at the end of the first night we were at church they played about six different styles of music. But they closed out the night w/ some rap song that was in Spanish. But all the Costa Rican kids went nuts. Heck, the whole church danced to it. It was like their “closing song”. Everyone knew the words and all.
The song was “Vida” by a group called DC Reto. It stands for some long name in Spanish, but anyhow, they’re quite amazing. There were a few songs that they played over and over (Pa Los Ninos, and Yo Te Quiero were the others). But DC Reto is a group from Honduras that also has an American in it. The music is quite infectious.
Someone from our group got the DC Reto cd and put it on iTunes so everyone could put it on their iPod. So we had all these white American kids walking around singing the five or six words of the song they knew, although none of it was in English and they didn’t really know what it meant.
But go check out DC Reto if you can. Their official site was down, dcreto.net,when I first started trying it, but it’s up these days.
