I apologize for not posting in Spanish (yet).
My Spanish is limited to a 7 months stay in Spain (Madrid) and I also traveled Andalucía a lot!
I am a Flamenco aficionado myself and I just wanted to share this wonderful site with you:
http://www.radiotelevisionandalucia.es/tvcarta/impe/web/enDirecto?canal=ca1

Listen to Flamenco music 24 hours a day!

Best, Aniello

I do like flamenco... May 9, 2009

...but it's more the guitar aspect that I enjoy. It's a good site though.

And if you like that, you might (just might) like this flamenco-ised version of a classical version of a typical flamenco song, "sevillanas". Confused? Just enjoy it! It's one of the best versions of this piece you'll hear (and see).

The piece was written by Albéniz, by the way.

Sí, totalmente franceses... Bueno, cantan en español, claro.

«Gipsy Kings cantan en español». Qué buen posible título para un álbum!

Gipsy kings canten en español!!!!

Me gusta mucho una grabación que hicieron con Ziggy Marley, pero bueno...me fui para el lado del reggae.

Sepan disculpar a mis dos neuronas que andan algo lentas:)

I dont know if you know (sorry for my English) flamenco guitars like Paco de Lucia (probably the best), Manolo Sanlúcar, Vicente Amigo, and others like Sabicas (dissapear). In YouTube you'll find many samples of these maestros.
