Susana Baca – Una Copla Me Ha Cantado

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Susana Baca de la Colina (b. Chorrillos, Lima Province, Peru, 1944) is a prominent Peruvian singer of Afro-Peruvian descent. She has been a key figure in the revival of Afro-Peruvian music within Peru (see, for example, dancers from the Perú Negro troupe, as well as "Festejo" music), which, like the culture that produced it, had previously been little recognized, but which is now regarded as an important part of Peruvian culture. Baca has contributed much to its international popularity, which began in 1995 with the release of the compilation CD The Soul of Black Peru. The album, which features the Baca song "Maria Lando", was released by the Luaka Bop record label, which belongs to ex-Talking Heads frontman David Byrne.

Como madrugadas
bebo despertares
me calmo con malicias tuyas
no creo en los metales.
De los amores no entiendo
y del dolor fui el primero
pescador, no soy bella
como duele el esmero
como duele.
Canto vanidades
río con tu ángel
lloro en el lugar de siempre
me impregno de tus sales.
De los amores no entiendo
y del dolor fui el primero
pescador, no soy bella
como duele el esmero
como duele.
******

English:

Like dawn,
i drink awakenings.
your mischievous ways
calm my soul
i don't believe in the material
I don't understand about love
and of pain i was the first
fisherman, i'm not pretty
how love hurts
oh, how it hurts.
I sing vanities
as your angelic ways humor me
i cry in the usual place
i fill myself with your sweat
I don't understand about love
and of pain i was the first
fisherman, i'm not pretty
how love hurts
oh, how it hurts.
