Here is Camarón singing it.

Lamiae sang this for me on Tuesday.  She'll probably sing it again next weekend when she, José Cortés, Manuel de la Cruz, Nat Hulskamp, and Bobak Salehi pay homage to Camarón in Viviré.

And...

José and Manuel will be giving cante, cajón, and baile workshops here in Portland next weekend as well. José will be teaching tangos de Camarón.

So, translating is a challenge for me. If you have a comment or suggestion, please let me know. And what about that video up there? I'd love to hear your thoughts. You can leave a comment below.
