Mele Fong and her husband Richard Tom – The Hawaiian Serenaders – sing and play the Medley: La Bamba/Twist and Shout on ‘ukulele and u-bass which is one of the songs we played at ukulele workshops we led on Maui and beyond.
Mele’s arrangement of this medley is in C with Latin Strum for ‘ukulele.
This medley combines two early rock ‘n’ roll songs from the 50s & 60s. “La Bamba” is a traditional Mexican folk song that became a Top 40 hit on the U.S. charts in 1958 when Richie Valens transformed it with a rock and roll beat. A verse from “Twist and Shout” composed by Phil Medley and Bert Russell in 1962 and recorded by the Beatles in 1964 is included in this medley.
