Flamenco Quote of the Day

Within flamenco there is also spirituality in the slower, more profound styles like tarantos or granainas. Since flamenco has been given this stereotype of "fiery" or "fiesta" music, people aren't aware of the contemplative side. Flamenco reflects all emotions of life. Seguiriyas is the most pensive and sad song to come out of a people. The poet, Garcia Lorca, said it could be played, danced or sung in a church without profanation.

Juan Martin/Guitarrista
