Borriquito - Borriquito
It seems that the blog has had a lot of "listeners". My DivShare monthly bandwidth has been exceeded, thanks to you ;-). It shall be reset sometimes after the 8th of October.
Mimmi Mustakallio (b. Raija Tuula Mustakallio) cut two well-received singles in the beginning of the 70's. This is first one, released in 1971, and called "Borriquito". Mimmi performed usually Spanish songs, especially flamencos. "Borriquito" was originally Catalonian rhumba, and a smash hit for a guy called Peret (b, Pedro Pubill)."Borriquito" is the diminutive for "burro" (donkey), and the song of course tells a story of a man and his little donkey.
