Alejandro Granados, Dancer, Part 2

"For me, Tina Turner is flamenco. The great Blues artists are flamenco. That term is given to things that seem authentic, that in some way or another approach what is basic and natural to the land and to life in general."

Reflexiones Sobre… Flamenco Technique

"Flamenco technique today is incredibly advanced and difficult. However, the point of art, at least from my point of view, is to have something to say and to communicate that effectively. Can you talk about the approach and attitude you have with respect to your technique? "  

Manolo Sanlúcar, Guitarist/Composer

"I’m not trying to say that I’m an especially intelligent or special person, what I want to say is that the impulse to do and to know has always carried me forward. It’s moved me ahead of myself, not of anyone else, of myself."

José De La Tomasa, Singer

"He who sings for the public is lost, because his head is not where it should be. I always try to revive my ancestors in my cante. I search for them. I remember them. I see their faces. "

Belén Maya, Dancer – Part 2

"I want it to be accessible to everybody because it’s a transformative art form. It changes your life completely. It changes the way you see yourself. It makes you believe in yourself. It makes you stronger."
