Flamenco Quote of the Day

"Americans approach flamenco in exactly the opposite way that it is approached in Spain. In Spain, the singing is first, the dancing second and the guitar third. Take Frank Sinatra, for example. Americans pay to hear Frank Sinatra sing, not to hear the band play or see the chorus line dance. Americans have the right idea about their own music, but it will take time for them to think of flamenco in this way."

Chinin de Triana/Cantaor 1982
