Gypsy Passion: New Flamenco

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Adam Greenberg
This collection of new flamenco was selected largely from a number of recordings on Narada. The new flamenco movement ignores the aspects of song and dance that are the bulk of traditional flamenco and instead focuses solely on guitar virtuosity. As such, there's some outstanding guitar work here from a number of worthwhile players.

The compilation offers a little something for everyone interested in the directions nuevo flamenco has been taking since its gradual creation. Listening to albums of quality traditional flamenco Cante Flamenco, or anything from El Camarón de la Isla is highly recommended, however, to supplement the lopsided focus on guitar taken in this subgenre.
