Disconnected from home? Listen to your music! September 10, 2008

One of the things I’ve felt missing since being an ex-patria is a lack of my own language. It is true that there is many people from all over the country, and of course I keep chatting daily with many people from home, but I still lack the immediate warm of a quick good laugh or word play in andalusian :)

It may be for this reason, then, that lately I’ve listened quite a bit more than usual to Chambao. While not the overall best sellers nor the best known, the group managed to ride the flamenco-fusion fashion quite well and gave us quite a few memorable songs.

I found out quite a few videos and even an official chambao video channel, so let me link to a few of my prefered songs like the famous ahí estas tú or pokito a poko (concert in wroclaw^poland?!?).

Just like they say…

Volveré a encontrarme con vosotros
Volveré a sonreír en la mañana
Volveré con lágrima en los ojo
Mirar al cielo y dar las gracias

ps. kudos para chambao por decidir apostar por la tecnología y permitir los videos en lugar de bloquearlos :)

Como sentirse más cerca de España cuando estas fuera September 6, 2008

Me encuentro por el youtube unos videos del vaya semanita, y vaya si me ha gustado, ese humor puntiagudo y esas frases 100% made in spain, un ejemplo rápido:

anchon: pero maite! dios nos dijo que no cogieramos el fruto del arbol de guernica!

maite: PRINGAO! tu te haces llamar vasco? a que no hay HUEVOS de comerte la manzana?

anchon: que no? a ver trae paca y que no coja carrerilla a ver si voy a inventar la sidra!

1000% recomendable :)
