We love fandangos around here, I know you know that. Here's one for you today:
Un sabio se volvió loco
con su esencia y su saber
no quería comprender
que los sabios saben poco
cuando quieren a una mujer
A wise man went crazy
with his essence and his knowing
He didn't want to understand
how wise men know little
when they love a woman
You can hear Paco Toronjo singing this letra here. It's a long documentary in Spanish, so if you want to get right to the letra, start listening at 4 minutes and 15 seconds.
I think we can all relate to the theme. What do you think of the letra? The translation? I was inclined to translate the final part as, wise men know little when in love with a woman. But I didn't. Please leave a comment below.
Chat with me this Sunday!
This Sunday, March 30 I’ll be talking about what it’s like to study flamenco in Spain and what happens on the Flamenco Tour to Jerez. Tune in to ask me anything about studying flamenco in Spain or the Flamenco Tour in May or to simply listen in.
Date & Time Sunday, March 30th at 1:00pm PT / 4:00pm ET
You can attend this simulcast via Phone, Skype or Webcast. It's easy to do so! To find out how and for access, contact us.
The call is for anyone interested in going to Spain to study flamenco, whether it be with me this May, on your own, or with someone else. You have questions. I have answers.
You may ask me a question directly on Sunday or if you’d prefer to submit your question ahead of time, simply leave it for me in the comments, and I’ll answer it on Sunday's call.
Don't have any questions or feeling too shy to ask? That's fine. Simply listen in and benefit from hearing the answers to other people's questions. I'm happy to have you either way.
