From Di Sarli to a Miracle

THis week’s Practica will continue with Di Sarli and introduce a composer that would not easily be confused. Fransisco Canaro – In contrast to Di Sarli Canaro emphasises the beat more than the melody and for those of you beginning to learn Milonga makes a great tanda.   For those of you who find distinguishing one orchestra from another difficult, the difference between these two should not present too much of a challenge.

Last week I put up a clip of Carlitos dancing to Di Sarl. So here he is dancing to Canaro with Sofia Saborido.  If anyone has a projector bring it along to the practica and we can all take a look. DJ CLive identified the song for me as Milagro. (miracle in English)

What I love is the clear but soft interpretation of the beat ( despite wearing boots) and how he leaves space for  Sofia to put in her own interpretation.

Ahh, it makes me swoon. Here is a really bad online translation of the song. But gives you an idea of the melodramatic nature of the song. Look forward to a not so melodramatic interpretation at the practica! 

God knows my life was truncated
and i have never dreamed
So much bonanza.
Anguish of living being dead,
stalking in uncertain sky
A hope...
And when I was already resigned to my evil
came your smile like a spring sun ...
Since then my soul, rising flight,
came singing to the sky
with his most triumphant triumph.

miracle of closing my wound
with kisses
which are songs of my life
Miracle force of your eyes,
I sing in the darkness of my soul ...
miracle of your red lips,
that you brought me with your love

God knows that I lived by biting anguish
and that my soul, old and stupid,
was bleeding ...
Then, as light in the abyss,
you ignored the pessimism
that clouded me
I no longer have sorrow for God's miracle
and my life sings because in my soul is your voice.
I live with your kisses, your lap,
and I fall asleep in your arms
to the miracle of your love

Until my suitcase got too heavy I was a sculptor earning a living as a traditional stonecarver . At the cross roads I began to make films - animations and live action documentaries. Their selection at international festivals such as Annecy and Sundance made filmmaking take precedence and now a different tangent beckons. Alongside I have produced for other artists and worked extensively in education. My current works come under the title "burrow" and focuses on ladders and the action of digging. It Incorporates animation, projection and performance and now is digging it's toes into interactive interfaces for audience participation. The Concepts behind Burrow inspired the idea for a collaborative Archive "Climbing Time Digging Light" which I'm inviting other thinkers, dreamers and realists to contribute to.
