Pitingo ~ El Flamenco Es... ~ CD
Definitely controversial with Flamenco purists, Pitingo seems to bring out the strongest of reactions from all sides of the audience for Flamenco and its Fusions. But no one can deny the impact Pitingo's adaptations of American Gospel music have had in Spain. Or that he's a very good Cantaor when that's his objective. Or that he's always accompanied by some of the best and most traditional Gipsy Tocaores around (i.e. Juan and Pepe Habichuela...).Familia Habichuela, El Molilo, A la Gala de la Rosa, Gloria pa la Gloria!, Malaguena del Mellizo y Pasodoble, Los Quereles, Matame Suavemente con Tu Cancion (Killing Me Softly with His Song), Silencio (Fandangos de Huelva), Yo No Te He Dado Motivos (Tientos), A Fernanda de Utrera (Solea), Me Rindo Ante Ti (On Bended Knee), Taranta al Tio Juan Habichuela, Sobrevivire (I Will Survive), Celos, Fiesta por Tangos.The El Flamenco Es... series of compilations offers representative, well-chosen selections from the recorded archives of some of Flamenco's most monumental artists.
