Le mentí
by: David Calzado
[click here for full lyrics and analysis of form]

Le Mentí, Noel Díaz' solo number, is the album's most extreme case of genre-mixing. It stays in a light pop vein through the cuerpo and the first coro, then segues into a brief reggae episode before suddenly turning to dark Timba mixed with rap and the first of Charanga Habanera's experiments with the "Boyz 2 Men" choral approach. Listen to the piano as the band makes the gear-grinding transition from the shuffle triplets of the reggae into the Timba tumbao [audio example 71]
