Audio only of Lila Downs performing "La Cumbia del Mole" in Spanglish.


They say in Oaxaca you drink coffee with mezcal
They say herb is plenty to chase away evil eye
I like to try the mole that Soledad is goin' to grind

O my darlin' Soledad, she?s gonna cook a molito
By the skies of my Montealban; at night I'm dreaming to see you

You first need to get the peanuts, you get the salt and the bread,
You grind and you fry the chilies, you try the chocolate.

Get cinnamon and banana, get cloves and oregano,
Get thyme and the blackest pepper
You grind the chocolate. Grind it ?

They say in Oaxaca hot water with chocolate
They say at the fiesta the burning of lights will tell
What is your kind of promise for Soledad what kind of spell
