"For my generation, knowing about cante and flamenco dance required going through the school of many moonless nights and above all, having a real love for flamenco. Having had the opportunity to know, to see dance and hear sing those unique artists, always of course, without forgetting the daily rigor and sacrifice of dance discipline. That and none other was my school, where I learned about dignity and about respect for the maestros that preceded me. Today's youth no longer cares about these things."
Mario Maya/Bailaor 1937-2008
