ASK A QUESTION What does siguaraya mean?
There is a beautiful song by Beny Moré, "Mata Siguaraya" and Oscar D'León did a cover of it as well. I would like to know what "siguaraya" means. I wonder if there is a city or province in Cuba named Siguarey or Siguaray, that "siguaraya" would come from. As in, they were talking about a plant from that area. Anyways, I would really like to know because it is such a beautiful song.
Here is the song for all to enjoy:
