Last Friday in Jerez we went to see Tía Juana del Pipa. WOW. You can see a video I took from her performance below. Here is something she sang:
Desde que te fuiste
de la vera mia
yo tengo el alma triste
muy triste noche y dia
Since you left my side
My soul is sad
very sad, night and day
You can hear Juana sing this at 3:30 in the video below accompanied by Pepe del Morao on guitar and Dani, Javier Peña, and Chato doing palmas:
* You can listen to Manolo Caracol sing it as a zambra here. (He sings a slightly different version.) I am not sure who wrote this. If you have any information regarding the author, please let me know in the comments below.
