Music Mondays: Flamenco Candido

Kellie of Airforce Amazons has a post about his first and last vinyl LPs at Bob’s Beats. This is an extract from that:

The other early LPs I remember my brother and I listening to were two Burl Ives LPs, and a loud flamenco record: Flamenco Candido, by The Curro Amaya Dancers with Domingo Albarado, vocal, and Juan Jiminez, guitar. The record was first published in 1959, but ours was a later reissue on the Pye Golden Guinea label.

Here is another Amaya, Carmen Amaya performing Buleria from a 1963 film, Los Tarantos. I think Curro Amaya was Carmen Amaya’s nephew, and Buleria is also included on his LP. More about the Amaya family on Omayra Amaya’s website.

So, here is the guitarist, Juan Jimenez, with the great dancer Eduardo Serrano Iglesias, El Güito, again performing a bulerías.

And here is a granaína taken from a Curro Amaya record:
