- The audio travelogues from Winter&Winter are like photographs, they capture the crucial moment, and if the records are exceptionally strong then you can hear the soul of a landscape.
Already in the 18th century the flamenco triangle is considered as the cradle of flamenco. That alone is a good enough reason for Mariko Takahashi, the graphic artist Guenter Mattei, the flamenco expert Jerónimo Navarrete and me to travel to Sevilla, Jerez and Cádiz in order to detect genuine culture and music full of emotion, sensuality and fierceness. For centuries melodies, chords and rhythms have been passed on from generation to generation. My microphone goes to an adventure in Andalusia and discovers the folk art of flamenco on streets and places, in small bars and private houses. The quote from Erich Kaestner "a saphead visits in foreign countries a museum, a wise person visits the tavernas" is our motto.
The real flamenco is often not performed on stages of concert halls. For more then 300 years flamenco pulses in the organism of Andalusia. This music is the voice of Andalusia and the album »El triángulo del flamenco« gives the listener the possibility to experience very closely the people, the landscape and the culture.
