Jose Mariaç Bonachera Garcia ~ La Vida y la Muerte en Antonio Mairena ~ Book
Few artists have left a footprint like Mairena's in the Cante Flamenco. He recorded a huge body of inspired cante, much of which he rescued from certain oblivion. And his choice of material and style of performance practically defined a new Flamenco orthodoxy for decades. Bonachera Garcia approaches this life and legacy with huge amounts of interesting information and critical analysis; but also with an uncanny sensitivity towards Mairena, his artistic endeavor, and the relationship between the man and his work. 444 pages.
