Yet Another New Song

Updated: Oct 8, 2020

I opened the pandora box of home recording and video editing... and now there's no stopping me. I'm turning into a youtuber.

In this video, I'm taking a shot at Flamenco with no guitar, no palmas, just vocal harmonies and beatbox. Let me know what you think in the comments on YouTube! Soleá de Alcalá is said to have been sung by the gitanos who lived in Alcalá de Guadaira at the end of the 19th century. Joaquin el de la Paula is the creator of the melodies I sing in this video.

Here are the lyrics :

¿A quién le contaré yo

Las fatiguitas que yo paso?

Se las voy a contar a la tierra

Cuando me estén enterrando

(Dices) que no me querías

Cuando adelante tú me tienes

El sentido te varía

Ay que te quiero

Pero de lache no te lo peno

And here's a little translation :

Who will I tell about

The troubles that I’m in ?

I will tell the earth

On the day they bury me

(You say) you didn’t love me

When I am in front of you

Your feelings vary

I love you but, out of shame,

I don’t impose it on you
