Tips on learning fast songs in other languages?:

How would you handle learning a fast song in another language? Namely I want to learn to sing the Spanish version of "Babalu" sung by Desi Arnaz for that book I'm writing set in Cuba and involving Santeria. The reason is that this song is a reference to Babalu Aye, a Santeria orisha (god)

Training. A lot of training. Find the lyrics and try to sing it by yourself.

That's how I do it.tongue

Learn the pronunciation rules for the language. Get one of those foreign-language phrase books with a pronunciation guide in it and glue your eyes to it until you can pronounce the words correctly without thinking.
