Flamenco Quote of the Day

Corazon Flamenco, who came to London in 1995-6, brought the great artist Manuela Carrasco, but the first hour of the show was made tedious with kitsch--and what is worse, kitsch performed by good artists. They must have decided that unless they softened us up with touristy stuff, we wouldn't accept Manuela Carrasco...By trying to make it "accessible" to us, they had debased their art and reinforced the impression, already widespread in Britain, that Flamenco is tinsel.
