'Ines, hermana mia' needs to be on the list.http://www.flamenco-world.com/resenas/discos/bacan17102005.htm Sorry - can't find a YouTube clip.

Great documentary about Ines and the sorely-missed Pedro Bacan. It's a five star recommendation. If I remember rightly you get a separate DVD with Pedro, Ines and co. performing. Great stuff. There's a great bit in it where La Fernanda is on her mobile just before Pedro gets ready to sing a saeta. Unmissable.

your welcome,its good to have this topic as a reference in the future, if you are trying to explain to a family,friend or whoever what flamenco really is. I always found it hard to answer the question when people ask me "what is flamenco". i just dont know where to start , because its NOT just music, its much more... and only these films here would answer their questions . im sure you guys get asked that question, but I dont know if you always had an easy answer for them

Let's not forget our very own documentary born from this forum, where I got to know Anders. The proceeds from the film really help keep this place going



Also now available on eBay

RE: Flamenco documentary films (in reply to kudo

I would like to add a note from the FILM DIRECTOR whom turned out to be an already facebook friend of mine (I recognized her after seeing her name in the film). I contacted her and said thank you so much for the film of Agujeta and Moraito, here is her reply translated to english:
quote:

Dominique Abel: Thank you Ahmad! I think yesterday ... How happy was at the time, because the concentration of the shoot-not prevent me from enjoying the contrary, my receptivity was high than we gave both Manuel: Manuel de los Santos Shepherds "AGUJETAS" and Manuel Moreno Junquera "Moraíto" 1st ... I had dreamed, then was happening ... it was not easy to convince Manuel to sing in a rock nearby, and not in a theater. And I did not want a public theater or a big place, but a small space with those of his land they felt that song, it tasted like no other, then engaged with his receptivity. It was something I wanted to reflect: flamenco as lived by the amateur who is not a passive spectator and the artist feels and needs. Like to know and feel this song so much, I wanted to Moraíto to accompany him, as he did ... Luckily I did not know I had it was my absolute 1st performance, And trust me, let me do what I wanted, how he loved him (shoot in Super16 in B and N, with a team led by me, ultra small and very motivated, etc.) and that is what was very clear, as for OTHER MOVIES. But that total respect for the project as it takes in who is going to perform, have not returned. It is 1 of the reasons why "Agujetas, singer" has a unit, a greater consistency between what little you can do so far.

I really enjoyed watching the "Juanita" movie.

Do you know where I can get a TAB of that introductory Soleares/Cana falseta, played during the first minute or so? Really neat variations on the typical Soleares intro.

Really? I think you'd have to be a pretty gifted 'beginner' to play that rippling opening falseta with all the extra ligados, etc.

I'd still appreciate any ideas of a TAB for those variations. I know its the basic Soleares theme, but the variations on it are not exactly beginners stuff. . .

britguy, Im a person who rarely uses TABS, i learn mostly by hearing and watching, just the traditional way. so I cant help you with that, but this stuff IS REALLY simple that you can figure out by ear if you slow it down! I only use TAB for complicated stuff.

Here is the audio from the first 52 seconds of that video. I have the regular-tempo one, and a slow-tempo one for you (at 60% of the original speed). In case you can pick it up by ear, great. If not, someone else can help knowing that I made it easier to work with these audio files. If not again, then wait for me to get back to Beirut around mid next month, and I'll make a slow-motion video for you with close-ups so you can see what is going on and pick it up by eye and ear.

Cheers!

Thanks for the recording, Ramzi; and especially for the 'slow-down' version. Wish I knew how to do that?

I'll try to get it by listening, etc. Usually I'm not good at that. But I'll give it a go. Its those extra rippling arpeggio/ligado notes in the treble that I find hard to identify. I do appreciate your time and effort, and your offer of making a slow video. Hopefully that may not be necessary. . .

Downloaded the video off YouTube as MP4 using the Video Download Helper plug-in of the Mozilla Firefox browser. Loaded the video in Sony Vegas Pro 10 and uncoupled the audio from the video. Cut the audio to include only the bit you referred to from the original YouTube video. Saved that as a separate MP3 file and loaded the latter in the Amazing Slow Downer. Then downloaded the LAME encoder and bundled it with the Amazing Slow Downer. Adjusted the settings in the Amazing Slow Downer to make the track maintain pitch but slow down to 60% of the original tempo. Then rendered the track into a separate MP3 (which is now the slowed-down version). Zipped both files into an archive and uploaded it onto 4shared. Finally I posted the link here.

Voila!

Much appreciated, nevertheless. . .

Adam del Monte has a demo of a beginners lesson where he shows a variation of the remate phrase from the solea intro that you like maybe it's helpful to you? It's not tab but he breaks it down slowly. Starts at 1.42 in video below-
