PLACIDO DOMINGO -MALAGUEÑA SALEROSA


Malagueña Salerosa also known as La Malagueña is a well-known Son Huasteco or Huapango song from Mexico, which has been covered more than 200 times by recording artists.

The song is that of a man telling a woman (from Málaga, Spain) how beautiful she is, and how he would love to be her man, but that he understands her rejecting him for being too poor.

Malagueña Salerosa is attributed to Elpidio Ramírez and Pedro Galindo, published by Peer International in 1947 (monitored by BMI), although Mexican composer Nicandro Castillo questions the validity of that authorship. As he mentions:

"Composer don Nicandro [Castillo] wrote that several tunes from la Huasteca which were known as huapango songs composed by Elpidio Ramírez, Roque Ramírez and Pedro Galindo, were actually anonymous songs, as was the case of Cielito Lindo (Son Huasteco) and La Malagueña, which in reality, like La Guasanga or El Sacamandú, were known many years before, and should be part of the public domain. "

Many have recorded and played this song, in particular Conjunto huastecos, Mariachis and Bolero Trios. But the most famous version was made by Miguel Aceves Mejía with a mariachi band. With Huapangos or Son Huastecos, the falsetto technique is used to great effect, as in David Záizar's version. Quite a few versions of the song feature vocal gymnastics by whomever sings them, particularly the stretching of vowels such as the "e" sound in the gentilic 'Malagueña' for as long as the singer can hold the note.
