Moliendo Café

Cuando la tarde languidece renacen las sombras,
y en la quietud los cafetales vuelven a sentir
esta canción de amor de la vieja molienda,
que en el letargo de la noche parece gemir.
 
Cuando la tarde languidece renacen las sombras,
y en la quietud los cafetales vuelven a sentir
el son tristón, canción de amor de la vieja molienda,
que en el letargo de la noche parece gemir.
 
Una pena de amor, una tristeza
lleva el zambo Manuel, en su amargura
pasa incansable las noches moliendo café
 
  • zambo:

    Zambo is racial term historically used in the Casta caste class system of the Spanish and Portuguese empires. Occasionally in the 21st century, the term is used in the Americas to refer to persons who are of mixed African and Amerindian ancestry. (The analogous English term, sambo, is considered a slur) Historically, the racial cross between enslaved Africans and Amerindians was referred to as a zambayga, then zambo, then sambo.
