The time signature is 4/4 time throughout the whole song.
There are 3 different parts in Pura Vida, soprano, alto, baritone.
The spanish words Pura Vida means "pure life". The song is just about enjoying life and letting go of your worries.
The other song we illustrated was 'Didn't my lord deliver Daniel'. The songs are contrasting in many ways. Pura vida is a very upbeat, dancing song while DMLDD is a soft, spiritual song.
Pura vida, a characteristic Costa Rican phrase, literally means pure life, many people say this to others meaning "full of life", "this is living!", "going great", or "real living". The phrase can be used both as a greeting or a farewell, as an answer expressing that things are going well, or as a way of giving thanks.
