With president Donald Trump’s “bold, historic decision” to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, this blogger could not help but reminisce over that other bold, historic –and truly bizarre– move made by three of Latin America’s tackiest stars to help praise Israel as an awesome tourist destination, and not a place one should be afraid of because of the killings and all.
En tus tierras bailaré (In Your Land I Will Dance) features Andean superstars La Tigresa del Oriente, Wendy Sulca and Delfín Hasta el Fin, and while it was released in 2010, it continues to gain popularity. At the time of this writing, the video had gone way over the 4.6 million views on YouTube.
I’m not sure how these three got together to help promote tourism in Israel, but I must admit the chorus is quite catchy.
How pretty Israel is!
In your lands one day I’ll dance.
On her solo, Wendy Sulca praises Tel Aviv as a camel (yes, a camel) walks past her band while she sings: In Tel Aviv, I will love you, I will love you very much…
Just WATCH and behold the Andean costumes, the changing landscapes and the ebullient dancing in this, the campiest music video you’ll ever see.
