synopsis

Céleste, a retired lady living in France, was raised by Spanish parents in Morocco. Here she performs El Emigrante, which deals with the difficulties faced by migrants forced to leave their homeland for economic or political reasons, a song that was a big hit when she visited Spain for the first time in the early 1950s.
