I don't do it (the three beat weave) but I think "Zona de promesas" - by Cerati/ Soda Stereo - would be great. It is in Spanish, though, so I am not sure if it will appeal to you.
There are several versions of the song on youtube as well, so you can get different tempos. I love the live version from the "Me verás volver" tour, but the version with Mercedes Sosa is very moving and it is slower, so it might be good for training.
Moreover, given that the three-beat weave seems to be a challenging move, the idea that persisting can bring good rewards in the end (which is what the lyrics are about) seems very fitting. I want to get minis and do the weaves to this song one day!
Thanks so much, this is lovely & perfect! Both versions are beautiful & I look forward to hooping to them. I do wish I could understand the lyrics... I tried to get a translation of them online, but it was obviously mangled. I know just a smattering of Spanish, (enough to know Google got it wrong!) but I love the sound of the language.
My son is teaching English in Spain right now & has introduced me to some wonderful Spanish music (both from Spain & from Latin America). It's always great to expand musical horizons!
And you are right about the 3-beat being challenging... it took me forever to wrap my head around it! I think I started trying in September, got completely frustrated & gave up for a long time. Then in late January I started at it again & I'm finally just now getting the hang of it! I must say it's satisfying after such a long struggle!
I am very glad you liked it.
My Spanish is not perfect but the lyrics are about being broken from losing a battle and having to rebuild oneself, alone, going under the surfaces... and then it basically says in the chorus that there are delays in the process but in the end you get the rewards (he says it in a much nicer way, but this is the idea).
I am sure you will nail the 3-beat weaves and will get much satisfaction from persisting despite the frustrations and lost battles in the journey.
i am still stuck on the 3bw! i've been trying to figure it out for about a month now. my boyfriend spins poi and he has been showing me what to do but i just can't seem to get it all together in the end :(
makes me even more flustered when he picks up the hoops and figures it out within seconds his first try :X lol
im signing up for sandras mini class next week so hopefully that'll help me a bit too. any tips for what helped it *click*?
