Lady Lydia Sings Spanish Copla!

Standard

For those gathered at the Odeon this evening, Friday the 13th proved anything but unlucky as they witnessed a great performance of Spanish Copla singing from one of Berlin’s favourite visitors, Lady Lydia Yalin.

Lydia told us wonderful stories, taught us about the history of Copla and sang for us evocative songs such as the surreal ‘No Me Llames Dolores, Llamame Lola’; ‘Tatuaje’, about a chance meeting with a sailor and the tattoo of a woman’s name that haunts him; ‘Coplas de Luis Candelas’ concerning the history of a Madrid bandit, and many more intriguing numbers.

This was an emotional concert for Lydia, who leaves her native land soon to settle in England, and that emotion was evident in her wonderful singing. We hope she’ll be visiting us again very soon!
