  3. La Pobrecita

    A zamba from the pampas of Tucuman: a rough life, only four strings left on your guitar, and the city far away.

    A tune from the Amsterdam Klezmer Band trumpet player Gijs Levelt about the Dutch national hero Zaza, a little cockroach from a childrens book by Annie M.G. Schmidt.

    (trad; Rumania)
    (trad; Venezuela) (lyrics)
    A combination between a Rumanian Învîrtită and a Venezuelan Golpe recalling the death of a Chilean black army officer fighting the ‘Conquistadores’ long, long ago...

    Geamparale-like dance from Dobrogea, the border between Rumania and Bulgaria.

  8. Zvonija, Zvonija
    (Ljiljana Buttler; Bosnia) (lyrics)
    A čoček from the famous Bosnian singer Ljiljana Butler about dancing, singing, and drinking: a gipsy party!

  9. Déjeuner du matin
    (Jacques Prévert; Bart Lelivelt) (lyrics)
    He pours in his coffee, adds milk and sugar, without saying a word, without looking at me, smokes his cigarettes and walks away. And me...? I’m crying.

  10. Fumando espero
    (Juan V. Masanas; J. Viladomat & Felix Garzó) (lyrics)
    Long ago ‘nostalgia’: smoking while waiting for your love, imagining smoke curling from her mouth to yours when kissing. Romantic! The piece continues with a cha-cha part in Cuban style.

  11. Cerrado
    (Joep Everts) (lyrics)
    A virgin - strong, cold and lonely - does not open her door for the guy outside. Open up my room, my heart, my life!
