Something Latin-loverish from Robi Rosa

I just got a request for more Latino music. (I’m widdit, Francisco.)

I have been wanting to drop this video for a while. Now that I’m feeling nostalgic for “Kingpin,” the time is right. For two reasons:

I used this track – “Dancing in the Rain” – in Episode 4, before the album even came out. (Yancey Arias hit me with an advance CD.)

And this video was directed by Angela Alvarado, one of the stars of “Kingpin.” She is married to singer-songwriter Robi Rosa.

Robi Rosa used to be in Menudo. Later he co-wrote “Livin’ la Vida Loca” for Ricky Martin. But he’s a serious musician, not just a wannabe pop star. Rosa’s abundant solo material is stylish and ambitious.
