Why These Are The Best Spanish Songs: “You may think I suggest these two because they are very famous artists only, but I think that the lyrics of their songs are simple and the music is not boring. They are Colombians, and it is said that the Colombian accent is more neutral and easy to understand. Other good examples of Colombian music with uptempo songs with simple lyrics is Bacilli.”

Tal vez se pueda pensar que sugiero a estos dos artistas porque son muy famosos solamente, pero yo pienso que las letras de sus canciones son sencillas y la música no es aburrida. Además, son colombianos, y se dice que el acento colombiano es el más neutro y fácil de entender. Otros buenos exponentes de la música colombiana que tienen canciones movidas con letras sencillas es Bacilos.”

Lily (Peru):These are great Spanish songs and are also a lot of fun to listen to!”
