ong Information

The song is one of the two songs Shakira composed for the movie.

On his own initiative, García Márquez convinced Grammy-winning singer-songwriter Shakira, who hails from the nearby city of Barranquilla, to provide two songs for the film. The songs were written with Brazilian composer Antonio Pinto. The full score was composed by Pinto, who also scored "City of God (film)" and "Lord of War".

She repeats the tune in a low sensual voice that fluctuates dramatically with melisma and falsetto: "Ay, mi bien, ta-ri-ri-da-da-ra, la-di di da di di da. . . . And it just started to come out of me like that, a spontaneous reaction. So I felt it was my duty, almost a moral one, to be involved with this project."

That snippet turned into "Hay Amores," a bolero full of romance, poetry and yearning. It's a style that dates to the late 1800s, matching the movie's era, and was popularized throughout Latin America in the 1940s and '50s by guitar trios such as Los Panchos and Los Tres Reyes, whose surviving member was invited to play on the recording, available on iTunes and soon on the soundtrack.

"The bolero is in my blood," says Shakira. "And it's undoubtedly the pinnacle of romantic music. Nothing can capture the sentiment of love like a bolero does, and nothing else could do justice to this story."

The "Love in the Time of Cholera EP" and full soundtrack were released exclusively on iTunes on November 13, 2007.
