Your Appetite For Death And The Taste Of Its Mouth* With Seville's World Flamenco Fair coming up on October 3, I was astonished to find, thanks to the samples [MP3 and Real Audio req.] offered by the Flamenco World website, how revitalized it's recently been by eclecticism and sheer, uninhibited imagination. And here's an interesting collection of essays and links to pour over while you're listening...
*Nobody knows you. No. But I sing of you. For posterity I sing of your profile and grace. Of the signal maturity of your understanding. Of your appetite for death and the taste of its mouth. - Federico Garcia Lorca

Nice stuff. I recall Lenny Bruce remarking that a flamenco dancer was a guy who ways always looking backside to see if his ass was still there. And clapping when he found it was.

ahh flamenco and garcia lorca...! *swoon* all the years of my ballet training the only pure joy i ever experienced was in our character classes where we were taught flamenco and other "ethnic" dances. it was the one dance that abducted my entire being into another universe. bwah! that sounds so silly but i don't have any better words at the moment. doh.

and garcia lorca is my favourite poet, the reason why i'm learning spanish; so that i can read him in his native language. everyone says that nearly everything is lost in the translation...

great post miguel, thanks...!

Miguel---great stuff! By the way, if Belen Maya ever comes to your town, don't miss her. She's breathtaking.
