Cucurrucucu Paloma

Here is Perla Batalla singing the same wonderful song as Veloso, above. I think she is more manipulative with the sound than Veloso. She is riding a wave, just behind the crest, having a wonderful time. I like this version, too. There's little more of a pop feeling to it, but such a voice. Her version is moving, even without the benefit of a full string orchestra supporting her.

was a backup singer for Leonard Cohen and sang on his film and tribute album I'm Your Man. If you saw the film you may remember her and Julie Christensen. They were hard to miss. They preformed some duos that are still vivid in my mind. Here's Batalla...see what you think of her Cucurrucucu.
