¿A quién le contaré yo?
yo le canto a mi niño*
que tengo la obligación
Who will I sing to?
I'll sing to my child
for I'm obligated to
*Often here the singer sings the name of the person dancing, "Yo le canto a mi [insert name] ..."
Here is El Almendro singing this letra to Rocío at Peña La Bulería during the last Flamenco Tour to Jerez (Unfortunately I ran out of space on my camera before she finished dancing. Rocío loves to dance and loves a fiesta. On this day she was recovering from a cold after having spent ten days on the pilgrimage to Rocío the week before...)
Whenever somebody sings to me this letra to me I smile a humongous smile. There's just something about hearing a somebody sing your name as you dance.
