07:07 pm - YouTube nostalgia trip... the Many versions of "Lanca Perfume".. part 2

Two years later.. Gloria sings a faster version of Baila Conmigo:



And she still sings it.. here as a medley with other Spanish songs..



Now, back to local singers.. Agot Isidro has her own version.. that goes back to the Portuguese original lyrics:



And 20 years after the original.. Rita Lee is singing an acoustic version with a different tempo:



I guess Lanca Perfume is here to stay!!

06:29 pm - YouTube nostalgia trip... the Many versions of "Lanca Perfume"

Ever had a song from the past stuck in your head and you had the urge to look it up on YouTube? Well somehow I got reminded of "Lanza Perfume" circa 1981... so I looked it up on YouTube and found this..


Yes, that was the song.. By Rital Lee...And it was in Portuguese.. but something about it didn't quite fit with my memory..


After a bit more searching I found this:


Supposedly by "Sherry Simons", it turns out "Sherry Simons" was a pseudonym used by Vicor Records for one of their local vocalists (Babsie Molina). Aha.. why didn't they just sell the original Rita Lee version? More money for them I guess..

Now.. in the related links, I found a version by Gloria Estefan (when she was still billed as Miami Sound Machine).. now in Spanish and title Baile Conmigo.. here's a live version where she sings with her cousin, Merci Navarro. (By the way, the tv host is the former Miss Universe, Marisol Malaret)

About the Featured Instructor:
Jarkko Lapinlampi started his Aikido career in north Finland, when he joined a local Aikikai aikido club in 1980. In that time Scandinavia's main teacher was Ichimura Sensei.

When Ichimura Sensei moved back to Japan in 1986, a group of aikidoka including Jarkko started to train under Nishio Sensei.

For that purpose they founded a club in Helsinki in 1988, where he studied and taught until 2004, when he moved to London:

During that time he visited many other teachers' seminars in Finland and Europe, although Nishio Sensei was his main teacher and Nishio Sensei has accepted all his dan grades (aikido 4th dan, aikido-toho iai 4th dan). They organized annually his and/or his Japanese student's seminars in Helsinki.

Jarrko was involved in the Educational committee of Finland Aikikai as a Chairman, and was a member of the Technical committee as well (to represent Nishio's aikido in Finland)
