Hardcore flamenco with a psychedelic twist

Hello friends,

 

Above is my latest video, "Gloria a Tomás", a tribute to Tomás Pavón and Niño Gloria, great names of flamenco who left their print on this style from Jerez.

It's a traditional flamenco style called Bulerías por soleá, which are bulería melodies sung at a slower speed, like a lively soleá. Their characteristics are strong guitar playing, heavy compás and a certain flexibility in the structure of the singing.


I added a personal touch, with a choir of voices and with the guitar tuned to double drop D. This wouldn't be considered "pure flamenco" : it is flamenco "with an accent", made outside of Spain. Flamenco belongs to Andalucia and the Gitano people, but the passion for flamenco is a worldwide phenomenon.
 

I hope you will like it. Cheers.

Alvaro

"Man was made for Joy & Woe 

And when this we rightly know 

Thro the World we safely go 

Joy & Woe are woven fine 

A Clothing for the soul divine 

Under every grief & pine

Runs a joy with silken twine" 

William Blake - Auguries of Innocence
