La canción de la semana #61

This week's piece of music is nothing less than Maurice Ravel’s Bolero as performed by Jorge Pardo, one of the greatest flute (and sax) players I ever heard. This track is taken from Jorge Pardo's album Mira. Es fenomenal.

La canción de la semana #60

Narigón by Daniel Melingo (courtesy Mañana).

    Narigón
    Por los pagos de mi barrio habia un tipo que se las daba de guapo
    Pero su mente estaba revirada le decian:
    El Narigón
    Por lo mucho que aspiraba
    Salia de noche, volvia de dia
    No tenia paz ese muchacho
    Pero todos le decian vas a tener que parar
    Y se pianto nomas ,intoxicado quedo duro como rulo de estatua
    Hasta que un buen dia el mate no le dio para mas
    Narigón compadre, que hiciste de tu sangre?
    Narigón compadre, malevo de pacotilla
    Narigón compadre, aprende de un avez a darte!

La canción de la semana #58

Continuing with instrumental music. In this way, our 'La canción' does not have to be in Spanish, as long as there is some connection with Hispanic music.

I would like to introduce a Russian flamenco guitarist Ivan Smirnov. I first saw and heard him live some 20 years ago in Moscow, when he was in a line-up of (then) Soviet jazz-rock outfit Arsenal (!). Tonight's song, Rendez-vous, is taken from this website containing 16 complete audio tracks. I hope you like his music.
