I wrote about the Carlos Vives song “Amor de mi tierra” in this post about songs with repetitions of voy + a. Here are a few more things you can do with the song:
There’s only one unique occurrence of this subjunctive for influence, but it’s a nice line and it’s repeated:
Quiero que lleves en ti la vida mía
The song has a good contrast of por and para, beginning the first verse with
and the second with
and these are also good examples of the infinitive following a preposition.
Because of the theme of the song, there’s quite a bit of good nature vocabulary: tierra
Some cultural elements, too, are the concept of the sierra, the mountainous region in many Spanish-speaking countries, and cumbia, music and dance typical of the Caribbean coast of Colombia. Vives’s music is always distinctly Colombian.
