|Spanish term or phrase: sabicas|
|An American friend saw a flamenco show on TV called "Sabicas de flamenco" (or de Andalucía/Sevilla, something like that) and he asked me about the meaning of sabicas. I haven't been able to find it anywhere. I've even consulted a caló (gypsy) dictionary, but to no avail. |
Thanks in advance for your help.

Sabicas (proper name)
That's what I found on Google.
Sabicas, greatest flamenco guitar player of all time!
Thank you for reminding me of my lost youth. This was one of the musicians I was most passionately fond of in my younger years--really beautiful guitar playing, often to the point of heart-wrenching. He died at least twenty years ago, but left many fine recordings. I hope you get to hear some of his work someday. And I think I'll go back and listen to the couple of records I have managed to hang onto. Fortunately, I managed to find a stereo LP turn table recently, so I can listen to those recordings once again.
