Flamenco Quote of the Day

“As a black person, I can understand the sentiment within the Gypsy community that we are people who have come to hijack their culture,” she said, comparing herself to a musician “who can sing the blues but cannot pretend to have come from the cotton fields.” Still, she said, flamenco is itself a fusion of cultural influences, so there is no reason foreign artists could not take center stage.
