It Seems a Lie | Viernes con una Letra

A fandangos letra and a video of Paco Toronjo...

Fandangos

Parece mentira
que un sueño quite otro sueño,
soñé que tú me querías
y desde entonces no duermo

It seems a lie
that one dream would block another dream,
I dreamt that you loved me
and since then I can't sleep

Below you can see Paco Toronjo singing this letra. (The video is set to begin playing where this letra begins.)

Viernes con una Letra | Fandangos

I asked Emilio, who is coming here very very very soon, to give me a favorite letra. He couldn't decide. "Fandangos," he said, any and all. (I LOVED the fandangos he taught us last year.) So, I want you to see this video. Arcángel, cantando por fandangos. I saw him perform them live, and oh my goodness, it was beyond incredible. Me ponían los pelos de punta... He is from Huelva, go figure.

Viernes con una Letra | fandangos...again

Today, fandangos de Huelva and a video of Mayte Martín singing.

Here is the first copla Mayte Martín sings in Conquero. You might have seen the second one here last week, and the final one the week before. It's all a bit mixed up but, then, so am I. Hmm, though upon second thought, that's how flamenco is normally sung. The singer mixes and matches verses in the moment, so this makes perfect sense!

Y los dientes de marfíl
los ojos como las moras
y tu boca es una fuente
donde una noche bebí 
agua con ansias de muerte
