29 July 2009. Gray skies, lovely, even gray skies.
Yesterday--a vidalitá, recorded by Leda y María, half a century ago. Entre valles y quebradas--Between Valleys and Ravines... (The recording they made together, remembered from that time, now returned.) Or the yaraví, una canción del viejo Perú, making its way through those same passes. El Cisne, the swan. "Del cancionero anónimo..."
Traces of colonial Spain, leached into the American earth--el yacimiento... A young girl from Arequipa, this history, relived.
