Some extra information on Antonio El Alvarez"Canijo"
Antonio is being considered one of the best singers of Fandangos by many, Never recorded a single cd, he prefers to sing for his friends whenever he feels like it, He says that money and fame will polute him, he has been and still is working as a streetsweeper in the center of Málaga. When he was asked why he didn´t become a profesional singer his answer was: And who is going to clean the streets of my neighborhood then??
This guy is admired by many of the greats like Camaron, Poveda, Farruquito, La Cañeta etc. Last summer I got to meet him, we went to a festival in Torremolinos with some friends to go and see Juanito Villar, Capullo de Jeréz, Niño Jero etc. When they found out Antonio was with us we all got invited in the dressingrooms so Antonio could sing Fandangos for them, they all cried like babies. Later he was invited on stage to repeat some more. My friend got it all on film but Juanito asked us very friendly not to put it on Youtube because they where getting dressed and had no shirts on. So here´s the video when he sung on stage(I think I allready uploaded it last year)
