From the Huasteca

I listen to sones from the Huasteca,

and I cry while smiling;

they make me dream, imagine and remember.

 

Old black and white movies, the golden era of Mexican cinema,

Saturday afternoon with my grandparents

and a feeling of happiness.

 

I love this music, el falsete of the singer.

I think of Mexico and its mountains,

of my childhood,

of my Abue and Avi,

I cry of happiness because I love this music so much.

    One day, we will have to have a Mexican cinema marathon – I would love to hear about all of the golden era actresses and actors! PS: Mmm! I also love falsetto!
