La Paloma is a popular Spanish song in the Habanera style. It was written by Spaniard Sebastian Iradier in 1861, after a visit to Cuba. Iradier did not live long enough to learn how popular his song would become. Today it is known internationally as one of the most recorded songs of all time.
This arrangement, for ukulele and guitar respectively, creates a classic Spanish sound by harmonizing the melody in 3rds.
