The CD-book ‘Flamenco: Patrimonio de la Humanidad’ journeys through the history of jondo music. In November 2010, UNESCO decided to include flamenco on the Representative List of the Intangible Cultural World Heritage, which is the greatest international distinction for any cultural expression. There have been somewhat more than 200 years of history, according to the documented information which is currently held, in which flamenco has continually grown thanks to the creativity of mighty, brilliant, courageous artists who have gone beyond the limits of diverse kinds (territorial, social, political) in order to offer a type of music too beautiful to be ignored.
Flamenco Hoy is the first live work directed by the great Spanish filmmaker Carlos Saura, awarded and nominated in all the relevant film festivals such as Cannes, Berlin, Montreal, or San Sebastian, and including several Oscar Award nominations.
Voyage fascinant au cœur du flamenco andalou, ce spectacle est mis en scène par le cinéaste espagnol Carlos Saura, amoureux de musique et de danse. Vingt brillants représentants de la jeune génération flamenca - danseurs, chanteurs ou musiciens - revisitent de façon époustouflante cet art entré en 2011 au patrimoine immatériel de l'humanité de l'Unesco.
Flamenco song and Spanish 'copla' joined in the voice of Rafael A. Salazar (Salamanca, 1923-1995), aka 'Rafael Farina'. He began in early age singing and was in 1956 when he came to release his own show. He was known as the 'Gypsy King'. Along the flamenco singer 'Porrinas de Badajoz' has been considered one of the great singers of the fandango. This double album features a repertoire of 40 fandangos.
