The real Frida Kahlo Video



I was fascinated by Frida since 16, when I was an art school student...long time ago. She always was a phenomenon, an event in my mind and heart and a huge inspiration. After visiting big exhibit Frida & Diego in Toronto last year I started 2 plates(etchings) about Frida. The song by Café Tacuba is beautiful too. If you wander about content, here is translation:

That Night

You should have not left me that night,
'cause that same night I found a new love.
You should have not left me that night,

'cause that same night I found a new love.

It seemed like she was waiting,
your moment of departure.
It seemed that she had watched,
my moments together with you.

You should have not left me that night,
'cause that same night I found a new love.
You should have not left me that night,
'cause that same night I found a new love.

She hold me in her arms the moment
you said goodbye to me
and I was not a great sadness
it was like going
from less to more...

"Your return I had waited
but I saw that you were very happy
in the arms of your love one
you forgot about me."

"But now you remember
to my arms return once more
I will always be your lover
your girlfriend... The Loneliness"

"If one day you return
with the one that loved you
you know it will not be the same
because she meet me too"

You should have not left me that night,
'cause that same night I found a new love.
You should have not left me that night,
'cause that same night I found a new love.

My Loneliness I have always belonged to you
Ay Loneliness! I have always belonged to you

Lake and Ojārs Vācietis Poem.

Te nu mēs esam.

Debess no perlamutra,

Bezvēja nopulēts

Un te mums ir jākļūst
par pērlēm.
