Quimbara quimbara quma quimbamba Quimbara quimbara quma quimbamba

Mi vida es tan solo eso, rumba buena y guaguanc!

    Quimbara for me means, come to dance; let go. There is no real meaning to this word. It's orogin is african. Celia cruz was an african decendant brought to cuba. The word was used for voodoo. Although I don't really know what it means. I think it means something like bring back to life or dane to live. I hope it doesn't change, in a bad way, your thought on the song =]
