Flamenco artist Antonia 'La Negra' passed away earlier this week.
Below watch a video of her singing bulerías to her daughter, and here is one of the coletillas you'll hear:
A nadie quiero

You've now learned what a cuplé por bulerías is, you've seen the transformation of popular song to cuplé, and today I want to show you one more example. It's Adela la Chaqueta's interpretation of Voy a Perder La Cabeza Por Tu Amor. (I know you'll enjoy her opening and closing dance moves, and if dancing is your thing, stick around because the next two posts will have plenty of that.)
Voy a Perder La Cabeza Por Tu Amor
Manuel Alejandro (music) /Ana Magdalena (lyrics)
Voy a perder la cabeza por tu amor
porque tú eres agua, porque yo soy fuego
y no nos comprendemos.
I saw him perform for the first time in 2011 in Jerez at the peña. He was having a good night, and I was told were were lucky. I saw him perform the next time I was there. Again, they said it was a good night.
On December 31 El Torta, Juan Moneo, passed away.
