Let's listen to another coletilla together
In this clip, the dancers were still wrapping up their pataíta at the end of the first coletilla and so the cantaora started singing a new coletilla, to accompany the dancers.
The singer could also have chosen to repeat the same coletilla, until the dancers were off stage..
Remember, the singer will never abandon you during the final! They will at least continue with jaleos or more singing until you finish your final.
I hope this description and training video help you make more sense of the differences and nuances between the main letra and the coletilla.
It's really only by repetition and listening to a lot of Bulerías Por Fiesta that we can train our ears to the nuances over time!
Take the time to watch the whole thing! These performers really know how to put the 'Fiesta' in Bulerías Por Fiesta! 🎉
Until next time, happy dancing 💃🏻
