Raffaella Carrà

Artist: Raffaella Carrà
LP: Fiesta
Song: "Me Siento Bella" 
[ listen ]
Song: "En El Amor Todo Es Empezar" 
[ listen ]

Christmas got off to an auspicious start last weekend when I found this terrific Uruguayan LP from Italian superstar Raffaella Carrà in the bargain bin at Easy Street Records in West Seattle. Popular throughout the world (except in the USA, of course, and maybe Sierra Leone) for singing, dancing, appearing on TV and in the movies, Raffaella parties with songs in both Italian and Spanish at this 1978 "Fiesta"; I've included a sample of each. Her music is practically impossible not to dance to.
