Latino judge has own theme music

Latin Beat for Latino Judge
by Claudine Zap, BUZZ

She is the first Latino to be nominated to the Supreme Court. But Sonia Sotomayor may also be the first justice to have her own theme song.

When the federal appeals court judge loses her cast—she fractured her ankle on the way to meet with senators—she can shake a leg to "Sotomayor Mambo."

The tune, actually from 1998, has gone viral on the Web in the Supreme Court nominee's honor. Latina USA reports that the catchy Latin beat was composed by the Norwegian-Cuban group, Mambo CompaƱeros. The old song was originally written for a Cuban Olympic athlete (of the same last name).

But what's old is new again. The tune has since been rediscovered online and is being downloaded by fans of the judge. Click here to listen.
