Below find another tangos from La Niña de los Peines followed by a recording and a palmas activity for you. 


A mi madre abandoné
por tu querer solamente
Ahora me veo solita
sin madre y sin tu querer

I abandoned my mother
just for your love
Now I am alone
without a mother and without your love

An Activity For You

Listen to her sing it on YouTube here. She's accompanied by just the guitar, so add the palmas. Play along as you listen.

Tap your foot on the 1 and the 3 while clapping on the 2 & 3, 4.

How does it feel? Is it easy to follow the compás? Can you use the guitar to guide you? What do you notice about how her voice interacts with the rhythm? Let me know in the comments below.

By the way, if you want to know more about La Niña de Los Peines, read the bio (it's in English) underneath the video.

We'll be dissecting tangos in August. Join me for the Ins & Outs of Tangos & Tangos: The Next Step this summer. (You can view the full summer workshop schedule here.)
