Flamenco: I can’t get enough of this woman right now — Estrella Morente

5 Jun

Ay bautizaron, bautizaron a una mora y a España se la trajeron , y a España se la trajeron. Ay en la pila, ay en la pila del bautismo Candelaria le pusieron, Candelaria le pusieron.

Ay, they baptized a Moor and brought her to Spain. And in the font, ay, in the baptismal font, they named her Candelaria, they named her Candelaria.

How atrociously inappropriate this seems to us today…
