“Cuando Hay Amor” is “a musical celebration of the singular power of love through all its various forms of expression,” said Estefan. “For that reason, we wanted to create a true musical fusion to best exemplify that power and chose ‘Samba de Roda’ mixed with rhythms and instruments that have been heard throughout South America, and particularly in Colombia. ‘Samba de Roda’ is a traditional Afro-Brazilian dance originally performed as informal fun after a Candomblé, using the same percussion instruments that are part of the religious ceremony.”
“Cuando Hay Amor”, which can be viewed below, was written by nineteen-time Grammy® Award winning Producer Emilio Estefan with Nicolas Tovar and Andrea Lopez. The song is one of four original compositions that will be featured on Gloria Estefan’s upcoming album, Brazil305, recorded in Miami and São Paolo, Brazil.
