Y viva España

The music was written by Leo Caerts. Lyrics are by Leo Rozenstraten and Leif Nilsson.

Over 40 million copies of Y viva España by different performers have been sold already, and the song has become somewhat of a traditional. The earliest version of the song is that of Belguim performer Samantha in 1971, but unluckily for her, this was not the version that became a hit in all countries. In England and Scandinavia it was Swedish singer Sylvia who got the bucks with her "Y viva España". A version by James Last has also been extremily successful.




The guitar arrangement

The arrangement is inspired by a track by Paco de Lucia. I found this on a Canadian released CD called "Paco de Lucia and friends". Sorry it's very short. One day I'll finish it.
