The nation’s fire fighters now have their own song. The composition is in honor of the 148th anniversary of the founding of the Cuerpo de Bomberos de Costa Rica. The song appropriately is title Bombero Yo Soy or “I am a fire fighter.”
The words and music came from Jaime Gamboa, a member of the famous group Malpaís. He said he learned a lot in being with the fire fighters to gain knowledge for the lyrics.
Gamboa, is on a YouTube video explaining how he came to write the song. He also recited the words and later the words are song with images of fire fighters at work.
