Perfect Winter Weather

Looking forward to returning to this tomorrow!

And to celebrate my return to San Diego, where I was born and raised, a bit of flamenco for the holidays! This is Estrella Morente singing the song from Volver, which was originally an Argentine tango sung by Carlos Gardel, one of Argentina’s most famous tango singers. The song was converted to the flamenco style and was sung by Estrella in the movie (Penelope lip synched).

If you’re interested in hearing the tango original, here are a few verions by Gardel himself:
