about

Agua Salá is a cool Caribe-pop song written and recorded in Cartagena, Colombia in 2016. It's the result of a spontaneous collaboration between British singer-songwriter Holly Holden and Colombian composer Cristhian Salazar Rivera.

lyrics

Ví como el sol se ocultaba debajo el caribe
y cinco arco iris de arena de piedra y mar
las luces de la catedral
y toda la gente que viene y va
y yo viendo el mundo pasar por debajo de mi

I saw the sun go down behind the caribbean sea
and five rainbows of sand, stone and sea
the lights of the cathedral
and all the people coming and going
and I was watching the world pass by below me

Cho:

Agua
Lo que quiero es agua
agua bien sala para quitar este calor

Agua
lo que quiero es agua
agua bien sala para quitar este dolor

Water, what I want is water
Salty water to cool me down

Water, what I want is water
salty water to relieve this pain

Verse:

Vi como el sol se ocultaba debajo el caribe
y una estrella solita en la noche brillar
la vida es una canción
abre los ojos y el corazón
deja la tristeza volar muy lejos de ti

I saw the sun go down behind the Caribbean sea
and one lone star shining in the night
life is a song
open your eyes and your heart
let your sadness fly far away from you

Cho

Bridge:

Ay que rico el agua fría agua sala
yo le canto a la madre de las aguas yemaya
agua pa ti agua pa mi agua pa to el mudo aqui alla

How delicious this cold, salty water
I sing to the mother of the waters yemaya
water for you, water for me, water for everyone, near and far

Cho
