Note: Devotional song for Saint Lucy. Alan Lomax noted that Honorina Riesgo did not play a square drum (pandero), but rather used his own guitar as a drum to approximate its sound. Payetsa: a long-handled frying pan struck with a spoon.
About the session: Recordings of a Vaqueiro de Alzada brother and sister brought by the Jew's harp performer, Eustaquio Vigil, from their mountain hamlet (braña) to Belmonte de Miranda.
