Flamenco Quote of the Day 

http://flamencoquoteoftheday.blogspot.ca

theres some good quotes everyday there for those interested

my favorites so far are :
"Flamenco fusion is done with making money in mind...that which sounds familiar is more easily swallowed. Flamenco is being adapted to the masses when the opposite should be true...the masses should be educated so flamenco can reach them..."

Pedro Bacan/Guitarrista


"To truly understand what flamenco is, you must know the cante very well. Flamenco is born in the cante, and if you take the experience of cante away from young people, they're left with no roots. They're left with empty musical forms, and when they build on them, they build without understanding the emotional substance that characterizes and differentiates the various forms."

Manolo Sanlucar/Guitarrista

RE: Flamenco Quote of the Day (in reply to kudo

Speaking of flamenco quotes, I have a whole bunch from El Payo Humberto:

"Traditional flamenco is repetitive? So? It's not like you say every spring, 'I've seen this 50 times in my life already', you say 'Ah, this is beautiful!'"- El Payo Humberto, telling me about puro flamenco

"I like the good things, whether it's from yesterday, today, or from tomorrow!" - El Payo Humberto, when asked if he likes a certain modern flamenco piece

"These new guitarists, they play in two dimensions... it's like an ant trying to contemplate the world! Hahahaha!" - El Payo Humberto

"The compas is elastical! You should not play it squarely, it should be more a-round!" - El Payo Humberto

"An olive without a pit is like a guitarist without cojones!" - El Payo Humberto

"If you get rid of the alegrias, it's a big loss, but the flamenco can still exist. But losing the siguiriyas is like losing your d***!" - El Payo Humberto

Buleria2005 tell Payo that one:

A Siguiryas is a gay Bulerias because it starts from behind. ;) - uncle of Rafael Cortes


And these:

Flamenco is all about evolution. If you don´t go forward you´ll fall by the wayside. -Doitsujin

If you want to go forward you have to cut off old memories, if you settle down take pleasure in nostalgia. -YF


So wise.. haha

The study of flamenco is a bottomless well
(or pit ).

Probably said by many thousands of guitarists.
