The Saeta

i heard miles davis' "Saeta" today. that tune has always made a big impression on me.

i remembered it had something to do with singing from a balcony.

i had to look it up ->

"The Saeta is a revered Spanish religious song, whose form and style have evolved over many centuries."

"saeta" translates as "arrow".

it is traditionally performed during Holy Week.

i've collected a few tunes that i am going to present leading up to easter.
