The Alboreá is a song marking the dawn after two newlyweds have spent their first night together. In verses of four six-syllable lines and a chorus, this is one of the most private and deeply rooted forms in Gypsy culture. Here, the Cantaora Magdalena Montañes sings “La Marelu” on Spanish TV accompanied by guitarist Paco Cepero.
