Esta Dushi

THE STORY BEHIND “Esta Dushi”:

During the World War years of 1940-1945 wrote Pedro Pablo Medardo de Marchena the lyrics of this song in captivity in the camp on Bonaire. In that concentration camp, he wrote a dozen or more lyrics about the physical beauty and to be in romantic love with an unattainable woman. The lyrics held a plea in favor of the Papiamento against the exclusively use of Spanish and English in the ‘tophit’. The written on silver paper from cigarette boxes collection was entirely unknown until they discussed them and is private kept on Bonaire. ‘Esta dushi’ is one of his songs and was made famous as ‘Bula waya’ by the Puerto Rican singer Daniel Santos. It goes about his desire to jump over the fence of the camp and get acquainted with the beautiful woman he regularly saw walking at the other side of the fence. The melodie is of the song “Ay mi a subi un ceru” in the song book ‘Nos ta Canta”. This piece of history is available for download at AmazonMP3 (USA), iTunes Store and through the various download portals worldwide.
