Female Guitar Players - WHERE ?! 

a video Ramzi posted on fb interviewing a couple of women playing flamenco guitar reminded me of a question I've been asking myself for a veeeery long time: why aren't there any big and accomplished tocaoras? (is that even the right word? i'm no spaniard so feel free to correct me)

Do any of you know girls/women play flamenco or maybe even broke through a little?

Not many female guitarists in general, not just flamenco.

Ok, this thread can be deleted. Simon, would you please delete it? Seems like I can't do it myself.

you can delete all your posts if you want to, little button next to the "post reply" button, but really there's no need, don't worry about it.

For sure, don't delete the thread. We can cite it next time the question comes up again

Well, since she died when she was 19 or 20, you won't find any videos of her looking old.
But yeah, she had promise. I don't think I've seen her play any accompaniment though, just solo. Anyone who gives a serious go at Sabicas gets a thumbs up from me.

I just meant the playing was quite impressive for her age... I was aware that she had passed away. Very sad. The vids of her playing some of the early PDL are the only ones I could find on YouTube (I only found her by googling the titles of things I have been picking off the recordings to "compare notes" (positions/fingerings etc.) with other people playing the same things).

Yeah finding good PDL material is ridiculously hard. Variable quality to say the least. Filtering out he-who-must-not-be-named helps a lot though. He's probably 70% of the PDL YouTube pollution all on his own

Pretty sure she didn't make it to the other threads, so I'm totally glad this thread was started

I thought her attack was brutal! In one of the previous threads someone made the comment that many female players lack a strong sound. Not so here. Muy flamenco!! Olee!!! Really sad she passed away so young

Just start watching it on youtube. And then you copy the web address - make sure you have a version of the address with "watch" in. To you it should look a bit like this
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=thQ3H4Rj3os

once posted it will look like this

Hey it really works!!!!! Thanks a lot dudnote. Salvadora will be coming to my nick of the woods in January and I've asked her for some private lessons and I'm hoping she's willing to coach a singer I know as well. If this goes through these will be the first lessons I've ever taken with a player of note. El Paso Texas does not have any really good Flamenco artists so I'm very excited.

I can delete posts, but not whole threads, already tried this out. but this wasn't meant to be a butthurt "delete it", I just felt that it was repetitive and I could've searched for it but oh well 🤷‍♂️

هيثم انت بحريني لو بصراوي شنو سالفتك؟

this young girl really had huge potential and her attack was brutal. too bad she died this young :( i still think there should be more female guitarists than that.
