Today I heard this song on the radio: Otto Serge - Amiga y mujer. (www. youtube. com/watch?v=dR9s9bQWFEo) I knew I was not a bachata, nor did I sound like a bolero, but I did not know what kind it was. Only now when looking for the song on Youtube to ask here I have seen that it is a vallenato. How do I distinguish a vallenato? It sounds very similar to a bachata or a bolero.
