Subject: Folklore: Chan Chan and Juanica
From: MorwenEdhelwen1

In the liner notes to the Buena Vista Social Club album which I found on the Internet (will post the link here when I can find it), the description for the Compay Segundo(Francisco Repilado) song Chan Chan says he took inspiration for the song from a folk tale/song told in rural Santiago de Cuba.

I've been searching around for any references to the folk tale, but found nothing except more references to the album and statements like "Chan Chan and Juanica were folk characters." The PBS Buena Vista Social Club site says "The two central characters 'Juanica' and 'Chan Chan' are legends of Cuban folklore." Does anyone know anything about this?

De Alto Cedro voy para Marcane
Llego a Cueto voy para Mayari


El cariño que te tengo
Yo no lo puedo negar
Se me sale la babita
Yo no lo puedo evitar

Cuando Juanica y Chan Chan
En el mar cernian arena
Como sacudia el 'jibe'
A Chan Chan le daba pena

Limpia el camino de pajas
Que yo me quiero sentar
En aquel tronco que veo
Y asi no puedo llegar

De Alto Cedro voy para Marcane
Llego a Cueto voy para Mayari

De Alto Cedro voy para Marcane
Llego a Cueto voy para Mayari

De Alto Cedro voy para Marcane
Llego a Cueto voy para Mayari

Rough translation:

Chan Chan

The passion I feel for you
I can no longer deny.
It makes me tend to shake all over,
It's not something I can hide.

When Juanica and Chan Chan
Wiggled sand along the water,
Her bottom jiggled
And Chan Chan was thoruoghly aroused.

Clear away the shit from my path,
All I want is to sit down
On that tree trunk I see
And I will not go away.

Based on posts by "amphibian" and "pxdtone" on the internet.

Limpia el camino de pajas is a Cuban expression that means take all the trash, "shit," away.

The subject is so general that it would be difficult to attach any specifics to it, but there may be a tale or poem on the subject in the Oriente.

So, the question is, what's the story or song Compay heard? I asked a friend about this, and she didn't know anything.
