More Tradition than Noveau
Enrique Torres | San Diegotitlan, Califas | 11/30/2000
(4 out of 5 stars)
"This is something different yet very tradional. The term Noveau is blended perfectly with Flamenco to create something that wanders never far from it's roots. All the songs contained on this CD are represenative of the passion that is Falmenco. Often times Noveau Flamenco is streched too far away from it's roots and ends up in the pop realm. The Moorish and Arabic rhythmns are stated such that they color the CD with authenticity. This CD is a musical troupe essentially playing "juerga", that moment when all aspects, singer,dancer and guitarist all come together. A jam session , if you will, of Flamenco. The improvisational skills dispalyed by each artist on this CD are very beautiful and expressive. The music on this CD lends itself to visual imagery as the dancers heard dancing come to life. The cues demonstrated by dancer, vocalist and guitarist are blended as one so as to never know who is taking the lead. Put this one on a multiple disc changer for a change of pace when listening to other flamenco inspired artists. This is a very good choice for Noveau Flamenco, a sythesis of Iberian and Southwest flavors creating something honoring tradition."
