La Llorona :: Fabrizio Cammarata (and Chavela Varga, too)

I first heard/discovered Fabrizio Cammarata in Austin, well, outside of Austin in Wimberley, a number of years ago...happened across this first one whilst putzing around this morning...and then found the second one searching further...

There is nothing quite like live music, in person, being right there in the moment...

I like the first performance better...

From wiki: La Llorona - In Mexican folklore, La Llorona (pronounced [la ʝo.ˈɾ], "The Weeping Woman") is a ghost of a woman who lost her children and now cries while looking for them in the river, often causing misfortune to those who are near, or who hear her

From wiki/the song/lyrics here:

Here's the scene from the film "Frida" with Chavela Vargas singing La Llorona:

And here's a high def version:
