Bulerías de Cádiz

Mi padre se llama Juan
un andaluz figurín
mi madre negra criolla
y yo mulatito nací

My father is named Juan
a well put together Andalusian man
my mother a Creole
and I was born mulato

You can hear this letra (and watch Fabiola Barba dance to it) here. (And below enjoy some pictures of Fabiola Barba dancing to it the last Flamenco Tour to Jerez.)

You can also hear this letra (at least the beginning of it) and see Marta de Troya dance to it here.

This was a difficult translation. Thank you, Ricardo for your help. If you have any thoughts on this letra or the translation, let me know in the comments below.
