Tangos flamencos are sensual and playful. Earthy and fun. Grounded and feminine. Tangos is a four-count rhythm and can be one of the most comfortable flamenco rhythms to groove to. Check out this video of La Lupi teaching and rehearsing tangos with the Ballet Nacional de España, and you'll see what I mean. There are a variety of tangos letras of different lengths and subject matter. Here's one for you today followed by video of a very young Estrella Morente signing it.


Cautivaron a una mora
y a España se la trajeron
y en la pila del bautismo
Candelaria le pusieron.

They captured a Moorish girl
and brought her to Spain
and in the baptismal font
They named her Candelaria.

Hear Estrella Morente sing it at about 1:15 in the video below.
