Nina de los Peines is my favorite cantaora, not only of the old-timers, but of all time. She is just great.

Pastora illustrates and exemplifies this quotation from Rafael Marin, the author of the early flamenco method:

"Jipío. Esta palabra que casi siempre he visto que la han tomado en otro sentido que el dado en el flamenco. Muchos creyen--y siguen creyendo en el siglo XX--jipío es cuando el que canta empieza a dar el temple y los ¡ay!; pero en terminos flamencos por jipío se entiende cuando un cantador no toma aliento en toda una copla, y entonces se dice que la ha cantado de un jipío, o de varios si en en el transcurso ha tomado aliento varias veces. Como se ve, la diferencia de una acepción a la otra es bastante considerable."

La Niña frequently sings a whole copla "a un jipío."

"La voz de estaño fundido" Federico Garcia Lorca

José Manuel Gamboa writes, in "Una Historia del Flamenco"

"Ya existían esas canciones andaluzas, pero Silverio Franconetti las presentó engrandecidas; plenas de jipíos. A los oídos neófitos cantar a lo flamenco se correspondía con una suerte de competición atlético-artística en la que todo se reducía a emitir el mayor número de sonidos sin tomar aliento; esto es, dar jipíos."

Especially first two tracks here, she does a nice chacon copy:


Interesting to note that Camaron copied her track 7 taranta, but not her cartagenera track 2 (he seems to have gone along with Valderrama s changes to the form, los picaros tartaneros being the same song style).

Pastora so dominated flamenco that she earned the nickname Herod--the"killer" of the niños--as she would perform in a town where the locals would bring forth their aspiring young singers in a "sing-off", and Pastora would "slay" them one by one. Her voice is so penetrating, chilling, wild that it gives me chills when I hear her.
