"I grew up listening to my father every morning when he came home after he worked at a fiesta. Every night he had to make money playing the guitar for the 'señoritos' or other people who would pay for a fiesta, and in the morning some singers, gypsies, would always appear at my house in the patio with my father and I would always wake up listening to them. And from that time I loved flamenco. I would listen with eyes like this and with ears like this (he demonstrates 'big' gestures) to the singers who came to my house."
Paco de Lucia/Guitarrista 1994
