Buenas noches excursionistas! me he enterado por ahí que hoy se conmemora el Día Internacional del Agua, este año con el foco puesto en «valoremos el agua»… ya sabéis bien escaso, y vital para nuestra subsistencia, (y la del resto de los seres vivos) y para nuestra salud! Pensando en el agua, me entró sed, […]
A couple of songs to illustrate some ephemeris of the last two days (probably you will be able to guess these ephemeris). Sorry, yesterday I was not able to share any theme. Anyway, nothing happened: I have received no complaint, no reminder… Both songs have protagonists that shared the same scene (a nice city), but […]
Since yesterday we talked about the last released of Sr. Chinarro, it comes to my mind an older hit with a special (really special) collaboration. Enjoy!
Today in 1910 was born the great poet from Orihuela Miguel Hernández. Many artists have sung his verses. Let’s enjoy those sang by Enrique Morente. Enjoy!

This is a brief digression in the «collection» of Christmas songs we were sharing last days. A brief digression in memory of a great «cantaor» that loved to be close to rock musicians, and that broke the rules of a classic music style so many times. He was dead six years ago. Last weeks we have been […]
A friend of mine have asked to share a song claiming that in the end everything is possible and everything is finally achieved. Since we are in week in tribute to Mr. Cohen:
I cannot help but share another song by Enrique Morente. Let´s continue today with a couple of songs that I discovered listening to one of the four radio shows that Jota (Los Planetas) led with the help of Gustavo Iglesias ( Radio 3 ) to present the latest album from his band at that time. A song […]
Today´s song was in my list of songs to be part of the first post of this site; finally it will be shared on the second day of life of this blog. It belongs to Omega, a flamenco -rock record based on texts by Lorca and Leonard Cohen songs recorded in 1996 by Enrique Morente […]
