Enrique Morente ~ Sueña la Alhambra ~ DVD-PAL
Matching DVD to Morente's 2006 CD, which in many ways defines Morente's entire artistic aesthetic. The pieces on it range from the most traditional to the cutting edge of his genre, drawing significantly on popular folk traditions, and tipping his hat along the way to several major Spanish literary figures. The genius of it all is that the result is not a patchwork hodgepodge of pieces, but rather a seamless continuum of varied but consistent expressions of one creative vision. With Tomatito, Juan Habichuela, Pat Metheny, Israel Galvan, Estrella Morente, Ute Lemper, Blanca Li, and Khaled.
