Dominican merenguero Kinito Méndez has reworked his popular song Cachamba in what he calls “COVID-19 style” and renamed it Con Mascarilla.
Méndez explained that his children urged him to come up with a song to entertain people during these difficult times. In the video that resulted, you’ll see the artist’s family singing along with him.
The lyrics are fun and a good reminder at a time when we really should all be wearing masks while in public. So, repeat after me:
Hay un loco pidiéndole a Dios que sane a la gente que están infectadas, todos en cuarentena, quedándose en casa, por esta pandemia que la trajo el COVID con una Corona que hace mucho mal.
It’s harder than you thought, huh?
The song is available on all digital platforms. It has also been added to the VidaSalsera playlist on Spotify, which you can access by clicking on the right margin (or at the bottom) of this page.
