Blanca Paloma’s song is one of this year’s more notable entries. It is a lullaby and the lyrics are addressed to a child. However, she has explained on several occasions that this should not be taken as something literal. It is above all a message from her grandmother’s culture and roots to herself.
On the cover of the single is a photo of her late grandmother Carmen, who introduced her to flamenco and music in general.
