I'm on a bit of an alegrías kick.  I guess because it's what I'll be dancing tomorrow and Sunday. Yesterday I got together with Vicente to practice, and he sang me this letra...

Alegrías
Popular

Ayúdame caballero
a pintar esta rosa
que estoy solito
y no puedo dibujarla tan hermosa

Help me, Gentleman
to paint this rose 
I am alone, 
and I cannot draw it so beautifully

Hear Enrique Morente singing it again here  and here with Sabicas.

And, it's the same story, you know, the translation challenge.  If you have any suggestions or just something to say, I'd love to hear from you.  Please  leave a comment below.

De Mi Barrio happens this weekend at the Milagro Theatre.  I'll be there Saturday and Sunday with Vicente Griego, Ricardo Díaz, and Melinda Hedgecorth.
