MUSIC FOUND

On this page:

A few recordings I have come across which I suspect are not available elsewhere.

More will be uploaded as I look through stuff.

The 78′s have been recorded with microphones placed at the end of the horn of the player, (with no edit or cleaning up ).

with thanks to Eric Clarke for the use of the machine!

ZORONGO GITANO


CANA


These two sides were probably recorded around 1950 .

Rosario sings her version of Federico Garcia Lorca’s Zorongo Gitano

some background info I found on the net on this page and more on that one.

Las manos de mi cariño
te están bordando una capa

con agremán de alhelíes
y con esclavina de agua.

Cuando fuiste novio mío,
por la primavera blanca,
los cascos de tu caballo
cuatro sollozos de plata.

La luna es un pozo chico,
las flores no valen nada,
lo que valen son tus brazos
cuando de noche me abrazan.
lo que valen son tus brazos
cuando de noche me abrazan.

If  you like to discover old recordings of music from around the world, the following site is the real thing,  !  Excavated Shellac

also this site from Serbia: Starigramofon is interesting,

and of course, the British Library Sound Archive, which would take several life times to explore well…….
