I'm from New Mexico, a state with a culture derived from a beguiling mix of Native American, Spanish and Anglo influences. Few people know that NM is the second largest center of Flamenco outside of Spain and is home to one of the largest annual Flamenco festivals in the world. I love the music and was delighted with the selections recently made available on Freegal.
When most people think of Flamenco, they think of ladies in ruffled dresses, clicking away with castanets. The reality is much more diverse and I've chosen a few selections to give you a broad view of the music. By the way, nearly all Flamenco artists perform under a nickname and don't use their real names; this can make finding recordings a bit tricky.
Now all you need to do is grab a bottle of Rioja, whip up a batch of paella, and enjoy the evening!
