with the tones of my town,
with its angel of fine pearl,
with its half-haired angel,
with its blonde angels,
with its dark angels,

with its little indian angels,
with its little black angels,

through the slums of heaven.

"Pintor de santos de alcoba,
pintor sin tierra en el pecho,
que cuando pintas tus santos
no te acuerdas de tu pueblo..."

"... que cuando pintas tus Vírgenes
pintas angelitos bellos,
pero nunca te acordaste
de pintar un ángel negro…"

Píntame Angelitos Negros,
Andrés Eloy Blanco
