Although a remake of  Hector Lavoe‘s original,  Marc Anthony recreates Aguanile by adding little more spice to this latin flavour, making it a salsa favourite.

A quick Wiki search will tell you that the word “Aguanile” is a term stemming from West Africa as well as the Afro-Cuban religion known as Santería (Sublime anyone?). “Aguanile” (often paired with the words “mai mai”) is used to express praise towards the saint called Oggun, the god of war and metal. The learn something new every day.

Ladies and gentlemen, this is latin dancing at its finest. Are you ready to dance?
