Chano Lobato is a Flamenco singer of some note. Whomever put together the CD for the book Songs of the Outcasts: An Introduction to Flamenco spelled his last name as “Lobrato,” thoroughly sabotaging my ability to search for information about him.
Anyhow, my wife and I were first exposed to Lobato when we saw the movie Flamenco, though we didn’t know it at the time. Indeed, I didn’t know it until searching this very minute. He apparently sang “”Alegrias de Cadiz,” which may be the same song I have in my iTunes library.
I think this is it, and it is, indeed, the same song:
Presumably, Luis Moneo is one of the singers here, unless the creators of this CD misspelled the name of Portuguese prog-rock guitarists Luis Moreno or of 40′s Latin singer José Luis Moneró. It could happen!
An alegrias is a specific kind of Flamenco song. Cadiz is a port city in Spain. Ergo, the title “Alegrias de Cadiz” suggests that this is a song from Cadiz.
