This week, since I am in Málaga, verdiales.

Verdiales

Hojita de limón verde
y flor blanca de azahar…
sale mi niña a bailar,
y un rayo de sol se prende

en sus enaguas bordás.

Little green leaf of the lemon
and white jasmine flower …
my girl goes out to dance,
and a ray of sun catches

her embroidered petticoat.

I found this here.

Hear some verdiales and other cantes de Málaga below:

P.S. What am I doing here?

I am here to finish the first draft of my book. I am going to do it. This is going to happen!
