I'm still in a bulerías mood as I prepare to head to Jerez for the Flamenco Tour in a couple of weeks.
And so, today I have a video clip to share with you of a little girl from Jerez named Triana dancing bulerías (her signature dance of course) for Rafael Amargo. She starts off by singing the following letra then dances while her dad sings and plays guitar for her. You're going to love it.
From Veo Amanecer
Imposible me parece de creer,
que me enamoré de ti cuando solo te vi una vez,
y ahora te recuerdo y te recordaré,
como aquel bello gitano que me hizo enloquecer.
I actually did fall in love in Triana ...
... a long time ago.
But that's not what I'm talking to you about today.
I'm jut sharing this letra that Lamiae sang tonight.
En Triana yo te conocí
en Triana yo me enamoré
en Triana primo mio de mi alma
me muero por tu querer
Que bonita está Triana
Cuando le ponen al puente
La banderita gitana
How beautiful Triana
When they hang the gypsy flag
On the bridge
We've talked about how it is common to have different variations to the words of traditional flamenco letras.
This week, a sevillanas by Lorca.
And look, here's our favorite Ricardo dancing to this very song in a bata de cola in a video dancing with Compañia Rafaela Carrasco.
