THE LATIN GRAMMY AWARDS

Prediction

September 12, 2000|MARCELO REY

In "El Niagara en Bicicleta," Guerra has told a story about what it is like to suffer a simple bicycle accident and end up in a public hospital where the "waiting room is full/there is no electricity for the electrocardiograms/ where the doctors are out to lunch/ where there is no anesthesia and all of the alcohol has been drunk/where the X-ray machine's lightbulbs are out and the serum has been used to sweeten the coffee." Guerra's song will be remembered for using the Dominican merengue to tell about something other than sex and trivial situations.
