RE: Manolo Sanlucar - review of Taur... (in reply to joevidetto

This is a good read along, written by a famous bullfighter Francisco Montes. He is specifically referenced in regards to songs in George Borrow’s “The bible in Spain”, and indirectly as part of a group of “toreros” in “The Zincali” that were deeply concerned about the songs of “Los del Afición”. Although there is no mention in the Montes book about flamenco or music, I feel there has long been a connection worth investigating, the story culminating with Sanlucar’s album of the late 1980s. Also, the melody of the Solea sung by Indio Gitano (el Moro) seems to be based on the Siguiriyas Silverio 1, the second half of the letra.

And some pictures of Goya to go with the above:

Sad to see M. Sanlucar in this shape 28:35. First I thought it was someone else.

The most scariest thing in life is time. It's ruthless and doesn't negotiate.

It does look like they had to cut into his head there. Not sure, but I found this from September. Looks like this concert was postponed since then till last Saturday.

[The flamenco guitarist and composer Manolo Sanlúcar, 77, has been discharged this afternoon from the Jerez hospital, where he has been admitted since last Friday, sources close to the artist have informed EFE. After spending several days in serious condition, the artist's situation has evolved favorably and the medical team that has treated him has decided to discharge him today so that he can continue his recovery at his home in Sanlúcar de Barrameda.
Manolo Sanlúcar was admitted to the Jerez hospital last Friday after suffering a fainting spell at his house. The flamenco guitar master, who has long suffered from a kidney condition for which he requires dialysis, had suffered multiple organ failure.
The income forced to postpone the III International Flamenco Guitar Festival of Jerez, scheduled for September 1, 2 and 3, 2021 and which was going to pay tribute to the famous guitarist in this edition.]

Might explain why the site to sell his magnum opus was such a mess. Site seems to be down btw. At least I can't find it anymore.

I wish him well.

Forgot to add that the venue the tribute concert was held in (Auditorio de Merced in Sanlucar) is the exact place where we do classes with Gerardo Nuñez. For example the video of Trafalgar I put on YouTube is filmed right there. Looks like they have changed the name to “Auditorio de Manolo Sanlucar”. Honestly have to wonder if he chose that venue deliberately knowing Gerardo uses it for guitar students. I mean, the whole town knows that every year these guiri guitar players come overtake the town and walk up that hill every morning.
