¡Hola Amigos!

by Teresa Jennings

This extremely brief song teaches the words, "Hello, friends!" in Spanish. "Hola" is pronounced "o-la" with a silent h and a long o. The accent is on the first syllable. "Amigos" is pronounced "ah-mee-gos," with a long o and a soft s. The accent is on the second syllable. That is the entirety of the lyrics of the song!

The recording features very lively Latin brass and rhythm which punctuate the syncopation of the song. If you choose to play the song on piano, add some Latin percussion, such as maracas or guiro, to spice it up.
