- Flamenco is among the richest and liveliest of the musical treasures of Europe. Its century-old tradition, which originated in Andalucia, is now listed in UNESCO's Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity. Nevertheless, it is frequently misunderstood, and is often to be seen in inauthentic forms that have very little in common with the original and true form of Flamenco.
The Festival Flamenco Gitano was one of the first recordings which faithfully captured the particular magic of this music. This significant document from 1965 has lost nothing of its fascination, and remains to this day one of the finest flamenco performances to find its way onto disc. The pre-eminent exponents of the art at that time had gathered, and gave of their very best. "The Original Festival Flamenco" (CD1) has ben released before, in 1993 on the ACT subsidiary label EMOCIÓN. "Da Capo" is appearing here for the first time on CD, having been brought out previously just once, in 1966 as an LP on the Fontana label.
