Ricardo Baliardo played, his couisin Jose Reyes sang and Salvador Dali sketched.
It was a 1967 concert in honor of Human Rights at the United Nations in New York.
Ricardo Baliardo aka Manitas de Plata played regularily at Saintes Maries de la Mer in the Carmargue for the fiestas of Sara la Kali.
With the help of Lucien Clergue, the photographer (previously), Alan Silver made one of the first recordings in 1963.
De Plata was illiterate and practically monosyllabic his greatest inspiration was the late Django Reinhardt (previous). [more inside]

Surrealism; the birth of the word adopted by a movement.

In 1917 Guillaume Apollinare first coined the word Surrealism in the program notes for the ballet Parade; partly reproduced here.
It was an extraordinary gathering of enormous talents with the set, curtain and costumes by Pablo Picasso (these pictures seldom seen and never published)
The scenario was by Jean Cocteau; and the score by Erik Satie.
It was first performed on 18 May by Sergei Diaghilev's Ballets Russes.
The audience booed and hissed, and some in the crowd even started throwing oranges at the orchestra.
