Maria Elena

Originally written in 1932 by Mexican composer Lorenzo Barcelata, this tune was recorded numerous times in the 1930’s and 40’s. Boomers will best remember the instrumental version by Los Indios Tabajaras, a classic guitar duo that dressed as Mexican Indians. This version reached #6 on the hot 100 in 1962. My version is less elaborate, with a nod towards the rhythm guitar style of the big band era.
