La Paloma – The Melody of Longing

.
Sigrid Faltin / 2008

La Paloma was born in the 1860s as a Cuban Habanera, composed by the Basque Sebastian Iradier. This simple love song took off on a flight around the world and became an immediate hit in Mexico. La Paloma brought tears to the eyes of the unfortunate Hapsburg Emperor Maximilian on the Mexican throne, while liberals mocked him in a satirical version. As a marching song La Paloma arrived in Europe and came of age. To her melody children in Auschwitz filed into the gas chambers. A song that has scored countless personal moments, and spoken for itself for 150 years, doesn’t need our commentary – it deserves our celebration!
