Yes, we moved to Andalucía this summer. Anyone could say, and rightly so, that we moved here because it is where Viqui is from. Well, that is partially true; we could have chosen many other places in the world. Nevertheless, this region of Spain is one of the “COOLEST” places where to live (and one of the “hottest” in the summer). Andalucía is a true melting pot of cultures, traditions and ideas, old and modern. And we have created “Yugen & Duende-Vive Andalucía” to help you experience and enjoy the mysterious spirit of this enchanted place. The video here will give you a glimpse of amazing Andalucía, and the words sang by “Ecos del Rocío” tell us about the life and deeds of being from Andalucía:
Here are some of the most emblematic words from the song:
“Andalucian, let the whole world know that I was born Andalucian. My land is Andalucia, the cradle of fusing cultures, of open arms. That is why it is the greatest in the universe. Here we take naps, we drink good wine; it is our philosophy, and we live it, because life is but three days.
(Chorus) We have a language that is spoken by all because good people understand each other with their eyes.
It’s the land of gazpacho. Early we wake up, the first ones at work, that’s why we lifted the whole world: explorers, beautiful women, bulls and pilgrimages.
We are the ones who have sent out the most people around the world.
Viqui and L. Alfonso will personally guide you to amazing places where you will live the YUGEN & DUENDE of Andalucía. Join our first tour, Nov. 30 to Dec. 9.
