Today we flashback to 1996 with a video of Miguel Poveda singing tientos. (He's even younger than he was in this one!)
But first, here's one of the letras he sings:
Quien tiene pena no duerme
y yo siempre estoy durmiendo
con esto quiero decirte
flamenca que ya no te quiero
I am in the province of Málaga, so I am thinking of malagueñas. which I love.
Apparently the original malagueñas had folkloric and rhythmic origins from here in Málaga. It would make sense to share one of those letras with you.
But I don't want to.
(Anyway, I posted a verdiales last week.)
Today I want to share this Malagueña del Mellizo with you.
It is said that Enrique el Mellizo's influence transformed malagueñas into the cante libre style we hear today. (He was not from Málaga.)
