"Raining in Santiago"

Guest
"Luar na lubre" is a well known Galego music group. This song http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3JQnIPv3 ... ed&search= is called "Chove en Santiago" ("Raining in Santiago").

The Galego language lyrics were written by Federico Garcia Lorca

Chove en Santiago
meu doce amor
camelia branca do ar
brila entebrecida ao sol.
Chove en Santiago
na noite escura.
Herbas de prata e sono
cobren a valeira lúa.
Olla a choiva pola rúa
laio de pedra e cristal.
Olla no vento esvaido
soma e cinza do teu mar.
Soma e cinza do teu mar
Santiago, lonxe do sol;
agoa da mañan anterga
trema no meu corazón.

Raining in Santiago

""It never rains in Santiago, but girl, don't they warn you
it pours, man it pours""
 
Here's "Negra sombra," by Rosalia Castro. Her house/museum in Iria Flavia/Padron, a must stop "pilgrimage" onto itself, is located on the Camino Portugues. Included is a text of this poem/song, originally written by Rosalia in Galego ("Follas Novas," 1880), and a Spanish-language translation, for an interesting comparison of both languages.

Cando penso que te fuches,
negra sombra que me asombras,
ó pé dos meus cabezales
tornas facéndome mofa.
Cando maxino que es ida,
no mesmo sol te me amostras,
i eres a estrela que brila,
i eres o vento que zoa.
Si cantan, es ti que cantas,
si choran, es ti que choras,
i es o marmurio do río
i es a noite i es a aurora.
En todo estás e ti es todo,
pra min i en min mesma moras,
nin me abandonarás nunca,
sombra que sempre me asombras.
APUNTES
Este poema, "Negra Sombra" , converteuse nunha das máis emblemáticas cancións da música galega, porque o músico , Xoán Montés Capón (Lugo 1840-1899) uniu estas letras cun alalá recollido na Cruz do Incio. Foi presentado por primeira vez no Gran Teatro da Habana no ano 1892.
Considérase un dos cantos máis fermosos e elementais de Galicia, e as súas letras fúndense co trazo melódico de modo que xa non se conciben separadamente.


(traducción al castellano - Mónica B. Suárez Groba)
Cuando pienso que te fuiste,
negra sombra que me asombras,
a los pies de mis cabezales,
tornas haciéndome mofa.
Cuando imagino que te has ido,
en el mismo sol te me muestras,
y eres la estrella que brilla,
y eres el viento que zumba.
Si cantan, eres tú que cantas,
si lloran, eres tú que lloras,
y eres el murmullo del río
y eres la noche y eres la aurora.
En todo estás y tú eres todo,
para mí y en m misma moras,
ni me abandonarás nunca,
sombra que siempre me asombras.

...and ship it to Santiago for storage. You pick it up once in Santiago. Service offered by Casa Ivar (we use DHL for transportation).
Yes, the weather seems crazy. Lots of rain north of Zamora a week or so ago - but I got to learn a new word: "granizo" the Spanish for hail. I must confess I never thought I'd need to know that in Spain in the spring!
 
I am taking notes for next spring as I will pass through this region.

XM you also made me discover Luz Casal; she has a wonderful voice. Thanks.
 
Ideal pocket guides for during & after your Camino. Each weighs only 1.4 oz (40g)!
Luz Casal is something else, Ulysse! She reached international fame when she sang the old Spanish-language bolero: "Piensa en mi," in one of Almodovar's relatively recent flicks. Sexy/sultry...u'd like it! Best, xm 8)
