Vidalita Flamenco 

anyone here plays a Vidalita?


some background info i looked up:
"The origin of the word Vidalita lies in a fusion of the Spanish word vida meaning life and the Quechua vocative suffix -la which together mean “Oh, life!” (¡oh vida, vidalita!). As this is a country song from the Argentinean Pampa and is part of the Gaucho Heritage, it caught the imagination of the Flamenco Cantaores who created the Flamenco Vidalita with melodic features that respect and reflect the original qualities of the form.
The Flamenco Vidalita is accompanied only on the guitar, which, after a strong introduction, takes a back seat allowing the singer to play with and explore the melodies. A slow form with sad subject matter, dealing more often than not with love, deception and betrayal."

Leave it to "Captain Cante" (aka Doit) to move the discussion along.

If that clip is representative of this palo (--is it a palo?), then I'm not sure what's distinctive of it. But that doesn't mean it's bad, either.

Her voice reminds me of Rocio Marquez.

Only morons call "singing" "cante". btw at the numerous responses you see the interest on that piece of whining women music. Terrible.

See what you think of this beautiful example, recorded at a small recital presented by Mayte Martín last week in Barcelona- the guitarist Juan Ramón Caro is a genius and great accompanist, he gives very good value classes here in Barcelona.
