In the latest ZIN Newsletter (naturally, not available to general public), it is said that Beto cites ZIN 42 as his favorite ZIN Volume. Really? I can’t believe he meant it. What is there to listen to? Del Puente Pa’ alla is good (even though I still prefer the Grupo Niche version), but the rest? Rumba en Moscú? Sexy and I Know It? Yuck, yuck, yuck three times.
The live class was filmed at the 2012 Zumba Instructor Convention. That could explain... no, it can’t explain anything.
The camerawork is worse than usual, which is already bad enough. There is supposedly stellar (by Zumba standards) crew dancing around Beto but some of them keep disappearing from the frame. I spied one half of ZumbaTwinz and some other people that looked familiar. I liked what the girl with crimson-red hair (sorry don’t know her name) did on Inténtalo. Also, there were some funny steps in the aforementioned Del Puente Pa’ alla, I have to try those. The rest is disposale. And where on earth did Beto find those pants? I couldn’t find the official ZIN 42 sneak peek to illustrate this, maybe they were too embarrassed to release it.
By comparison, MegaMix 33 sounds like a good compilation. My favourite tracks are Medellín Feria de Flores and a cover of Huey Dunbar’s bachata Yo si me Enamoré.
