The third time that Hijo de La Luna banged me over the head with significance was one night with my host family in El Salvador. I Hijo De La Luna - Various - Back To The 80s (CD) sitting in the kitchen, taking fieldnotes and playing with the beautiful four-year-old daughter. The father arrived and went to talk to the mother in the only other room in the house. Both of them were only 23, hardly older than me. Their rapid heated voices raised steadily for an hour until the mother started to sob, and the father left and came into the kitchen.
He sat across from me at the table. I was still pretending to write fieldnotes, terrified to show any reaction. The mother told me he had been violent in the past. He gave me a deep, sad look, the saddest face I have yet to see on a human being, and then scooped up his sleepy daughter. He plopped into the hammock Hijo De La Luna - Various - Back To The 80s (CD) the kitchen, cradling her in his arms, and took out his old janky phone-mp3 player.
What song did he choose? He played it over and over again, it must have been thirty times in a row. It was about one in the morning. Hijo de La Luna. The characters are ancient and immortal and universal; immoral but sympathetic in their imperfection. Here in Ecuador, I hear the mournful song occasionally on the radio, and when I sit down to write I put it on repeat.
Posted in Uncategorized. I love reading your post. Thank you for sharing! I know this song and like many other folk songs it reveals the many issues that Latin American culture deals with. As for Malinche, there is always a debate about how to portray her.
Malinche continues to hold negative connotations because of all the Western influences that Mexico has welcomed. Not Hijo De La Luna - Various - Back To The 80s (CD) has been necessarily bad but when the indigenous cultures and history is forgotten then there is a problem.

Sandra, while having amazing production behind her, aways suffered a bit from having no sense of humour and taking herself way too seriously.
