Sabor in Spanish-language music

Hello,

I love Cuban music, which frequently refers to the sabor/flavor of music.

But it seems that this is not limited to Cuba, but many Latin American countries seem to feel music this way (jarabe tapatío, merengue, salsa [timba]).

Could you help me understand what it means for music or a rhythm or beat to be sabroso or have sabor.

Is that different than comparing a woman to guarapo or kisses to melado?

Thanks! Regular smile

Hola, "sabor" literally means "flavor", but in many latin songs this word has different meanings such a "good style", "rhythm" , for example 'Dale sabor' could mean "Give it rhythm". That word can even be used to express happiness or joy while singing (you may find this example in many Caribean songs). I hope this can be useful for you.

Thank you. There are many large Cuban communities in the US (where I live), but apparently they are not plugged in to this website. I feel like going to a dance club and putting advertisements on people's cars! If I had the money and energy, I would just go to Cuba myself and talk to musicians.

Don't worry, just in case you can't find that or another word please don't hesitate about asking for the meaning or translation.
