Yordano - Por Estas Calles

Where would be now without "Por Estas Calles" ("On These Streets"), a groundbreaking Venezuelan soap opera produced by RCTV in 1992 that reflected the turmoil of the times. Yordano's video of the theme song includes footage of the street protests that led up to the 1992 coup d'etat. The song is a Cuban son, a departure from Yordano's usual pop ballads, thankfully. Sounds a bit ropey for the first few seconds but gets better.
