Florida Folksong - Merce [Translation]

Cuban Americans spoken Ethnography Music Narratives Announcements Cuban Club Tampa, Florida Hillsborough County

The idea of the song is--the name of the song is Merce, that's a name--a proper name. It's a Negro girl's name, and she's supposed to be the most popular of the party, and the song refers to her popularity--that is, her way of dancing and acting and speaking, and so forth, and everybody sings to her beauty and her pep, would you say, and the whole song is based on her. Ybor City, now a neighborhood within Tampa, was settled in 1886 by Cuban cigar manufacturers under the leadership of Vicente Martメnez de Ybor. The cigar companies moved from Key West to avoid unionization of their workers. The Cuban Club is a recreational society founded in 1899 by Cuban immigrants.
