Fernando Quiñones ~ De Cadiz y sus Cantes: Llaves de una Ciudad y un Folklore Milenario ~ Book
Quiñones was one of the pre-eminent and most passionate Flamencologists of recent times, with a whacky argument now and then, but a deep well of both first-hand and academic knowledge always. This book champions the role of his native Cadiz as a major player in the history and development of Flamenco. His musico-cultural history of the city is fascinating, going way back into the deep pre-history of Flamenco in search of roots and influences. Quiñones also provides extensive reviews of Flamenco forms, styles, artists, and lyrics native to Cadiz. New edition (first and second editions 1964 and 1974), 293 pages.
