We have just released the translation of Remolino, by Alfredo De Angelis with lyrics from José Rótulo.
The title “remolino” (whirlwind) refers to how the poet feels for his lost love but can also be taken more literally as the whirlwind of the dance. You can very well imagine this couple at what used to be their favourite milonga, him sitting at a corner table in “rage” and “pain” and her dancing the night away, in “joy” and “laughter”. A whirlwind of sentiments and of twirling skirts.
