In several Latin American countries Valentine’s Day is referred to as “Dia de la Amistad y Amor” or “Dia de la Amistad” for short. Melding love and friendship makes it so much more inclusive irrespective of your relationship or marital status. Inspired by the theme of love, we found this ‘vintage’ video of a young and dapper Placido Domingo singing “Maria Bonita” to the said Maria- Maria Felix, the iconic film star known as La Doña. Written by her husband Agustin Lara, “Maria Bonita” went on to become a Mexican standard.
Happy Valentine’s Day! ¡Feliz día de la amistad!
