There is one flamenco CD in my collection which I like most. It’s actually modern flamenco, with various influences from other music styles (mostly Jazz), created and sung by a real grandmaster of flamenco: Enrique Morente. The CD I am talking about is Lorca, a musical version of some poems of Spains famous poet Federico GarcÃa Lorca.
Each song is unique, dense, intelligent, emotional. Though I don’t understand the lyrics (my Spanish is just too poor), I can feel the poems solely through Morente’s music. I’d love to see him live one day.
