"This song is called "El baile de Ávila" - A Dance from Ávila. The medieval walled city of Ávila is in Castile and León province in Spain." -Nancy


*When her suitor comes courting at midnight to her bedroom window, he strikes the brass mortar with the pestle on the inside so that it sounds like a bell. He keeps time with it in rapid succession (ding-dinga-ding-dinga-ding) and sings. He may also bring a tambourine and castanets to play or have his friends play.



Many thanks to Nancy Membrez for contributing, translating and singing this song for us!
