about

Andrés Gaos takes some unpredictable melodic turns with the traditional dotted rhythm of the Vidalita folk genre (from the northern reaches of Argentina). To be sung with a definite sense of melancholy and wistfulness, though it does finally end in a major key!

lyrics

Tiene mi chinita
vidalita
unos ojos negros
que de amor te encienden
vidalita
y traicionan luego.

Destrozó mi alma
vidalita
y aún la sigo amando
que amar en el mundo
vidalita
en vivir penando.

Amar en el mundo
vidalita
es vivir penando.



My little sweet heart has
vidalita
these black eyes
that ignite you with love
vidalita
and betray you soon after.

She tore my soul apart
vidalita
and still I love her so
to love in this world
vidalita
is to live suffering.

To love in this world
vidalita
is to live suffering.
