Yes they are extracts of this documentary.

There are passages really interesting in this docu, in particular this anecdote at 5min in the part2.

This kind of comments make me understand a little more where the flamenco comes from. It was the music of humble, poor people and that were discredited by the high society.

I read several times that the flamenco had bad reputations among elites. I mean speaking about the period of the Franco dictatorship.
I imagine these characters, these Senoritos, full of their authority and arogants bashing the flamencos artist as pitiful. I am sure this behavior would have been unbearable to the classical artists.

What the old man tells reminds me about Paco's father... when he returned at home irritated after a juerga with his guitar broken because of one of these Senoritos etc... I mean Paco grew up in this exact context.

I remember of an interview of Pepe where he answers the question:" what was Paco's main contribution in the Flamenco?". He opened the doors to us. Thanks to him we had the recognition...
Another interview i remember is Paco talking about his fast picado technique and if i remember well he associated this tecknik with the feeling of the fury. Doing something spectacular to prove that flamenco could be as great and technical as classical guitar.

He managed to shut them up...

Rafalín Habichuela, a nephew of Pepe, Juan, Luis and Carlos.
He's a very fine tocaor, and a nice humble guy, pretty low-profile.

I appreciate your answer. Looks like you're a Habichuela expert. I learned something from him by watching his right hand in this video. I was curious who it was. Habichuelas are awesome.
