Flamenco Quote of the Day

" I remember Manuel Vallejo, I knew all the singers. He would fasten a guitar string, here on the hand of the guitarist, and when he sang, the string would remain attached to the guitarist's hand. If the guitarist played something Vallejo didn't like, he would pull the guitar player's hand with the string like this (demonstrates yanking it). That was the 'categoria' of the guitarist. The money was for the singer. The guitarist got practically nothing. On records, the guitarist was lower than the singer and the last to be recognized"
