I am looking for the spanish words to the Mexican song "La Cumba, Cumba, Cumba, Cumba Ciero.

I'm not sure that I have the spelling right or that the song is listed by the first line but I've heard it many times, like it and want to learn it.

Thank you for any help you can offer.

The song is "El Cumbanchero" and you can find the lyrics in

http://argentina.informatik.uni-muenchen.de/tangos/msg06303.html

Note that many words are in fact phonemas of african origin.

Un abrazo,

The German website specializing in Argentine lyrics and cited by Escamillo, also linked by 'Tangos" in an earlier post, is extremely large, and has hundreds of lyrics under the heading "Tangos and Milongas" - not all falling into that category.
The index starts at: Tangos y milongas

for the past many years I have been trying to locate, find or hear an old song,"mi marilola" or "marilola", almost has a flamenco style, but am sure it is folklore.
I remember the first part, En el cafe the cinitas, canta y baila marilola, the last words are, que tu carino no es pa mi sola ay marilola, mimarilola mi marilola.

please e mail me any information that you may have. thank you very much

Does anyone know of any Spanish (pref. Estremenan) lullabies from the 18/19th centuries?
The earlier the better.

Thanks.

NANAS O COPLAS DE CUNA

1. A dormir va la rosa
De los rosales;
A dormir va mi niño,
Porque ya es tarde.

2. En los brazos te tengo
Y considero
Qué será de ti, niño,
si yo me muero.

3. Este niño chiquito
No tiene cuna;
Su padre es carpintero
y le hará una.

4. En la puerta del cielo
Venden zapatos
Para los angelitos
Que están descalzos.

5. Niño chiquirritito
De pecho y cuna,
?Donde 'stará tu madre,
Que no t' arrulla?

6. Este niño chiquito
No tiene madre:
Lo parió una gitana,
Lo echó a la calle.

The above are half a dozen from "Cantos populares Españoles" by F. R. Marín, published in Sevilla, 1883.
These nanas tend to travel; it would be difficult to pin down the region of origin.

Montyzand, An Andalusian song was adapted in a poem by Federico Garcia Lorca. The song also was used in one of two flamenco dances recently by Carlota Santana, "Bailaor-Bailaora" and "El Cafe de Chinitas." I think the dances were created by Rosario some 50 years before. DVD is available for a couple of performances. The folk song can be found on several cds.


EL CAFE DE CHINITAS lyrics are given at a 'playgirl' site but they seem to be altered. I won't link, but take a look at www.sexylegsplaygirl.com/laverne/Cafe.html

Thanks for the suggestions.

I need it for my novel, which is an adventure novel inspired by George MacDonald Fraser/Rafael Sabatini/John Masters.

Montyzand, wasn't the tune by Paco Ibanez?

BTW, for those of you who like Lorca and Ibanez, I can't recommend David Broza enough. The lyrics were translated into Hebrew, but the singing and guitar playing is gorgeous.

Rafael Sabatini- I remember my grandmother had all of his books. Don't hear much of him nowadays.

Possibly totally irrelevant but who cares! I have a super CD by the Ensemble Alcatraz / Kitka Women's Vocal Ensemble which includes, among many other delights, their take on the medieval songs of Martin Codax which go by the name Cantigas de Amigo. Unbelievably wonderful!
