Gypsy Cante
Gypsy Cante
Deep Song of the Caves

Edited by Will Kirkland
Translated by Will Kirkland


Over centuries, Andalusian Gypsies developed cante jondo, or deep song, which grew from the experience of exile and marginalization. Although flamenco music enjoys wide popularity today, the words of the songs are often lost in the passion of the performance, or because they are sung in dialect. This is a bilingual sampling of the lyrics and brief commentaries by aficionados.
