This month, as we celebrate the work of Francisco Canaro, don’t miss out the translation of the beautiful song Madreselva, written in 1931 with lyrics by Luis César Amadori.

Shabby old wall from the neighbourhood,
I grew up in your shade.
Your honeysuckle was the real friend
Of my modest childhood.

Set in Buenos Aires “arrabal” (neighbourhood), this song tells the tale of a young woman, who tells the -unhappy- story of her first love.

Read the full story, listen to the music and discover the lyrics in English.
