Me pongo a cantar y no puedo
la garganta no me ayuda
tengo que tomar zumito
de la naranja moruna
I go to sing and I can't
My throat doesn't help me
I have to drink the juice
of the Moorish orange

Diego del Morao
Here's an interpretation from Miguel Poveda of the popular Bulerías de Cádiz reflecting upon the current-day situation in Spain. Scroll down for an out-of-control amazing video of a live performance, ¡que compás y gracia! with José Quevedo, Diego del Morao, El Londro, Luis Cantarote, and my (not real) boyfriend's real brother, Carlos Grilo.
Bulerías de Cai
Con el caray, caray, caray,
éstas son las cosas que pasan en Cai,
que ni la hambre la vamos a sentir,
que mire usted que gracia tiene este país.
La Gitanería is having these Saturday night flamenco cante shows. There was one last night. It started at 10:30. Only, it didn’t actually begin until 11:30, maybe even a bit later than that. We didn’t even start walking there until after 11. As we came in we walked by Diego del Morao. He was not performing, just hanging out...
The first set was excellent. Two young guys, a singer and a guitarist. Sorry, I don't know their names. The first set also ended up being the only set.
It was one of those Jerez shows where most of the people in the audience are Jerezanos.
