Flamenco Quote of the Day

"Today there are many people who can devour the guitar, who play phenomenally well. But when it comes to accompanying, the guitarist has to stop, listen to the cantaor, and help him...especially if his voice is not in good shape. He shouldn't insert long variations or do strange things that will leave the singer even less able to sing. When the cantaor finishes singing, he should give him a short variation and then let him sing again. He should help him to breathe and find his tone again."

Juan Habichuela/Guitarrista 1988
