A nice release of semi-traditional flamenco from one of the higher echelon flamenco singers in the touring circuits. The album contains both traditional works, complete with the jaleos and palmas (clapping and cheering) that help to make the full flamenco experience what it is, as well as less traditional works (making use of the tabla and a Gregorian choir). The music is performed wonderfully, with most or all of the soul necessary to make a full flamenco wailing episode. The guitar work is good as well, accompanying where it should, and remaining firmly in the background otherwise. The accompanying singers do a good job. Overall, the highlights are present in the form of most every song on the album. The album is firmly within the flamenco sound, and those that wish to look into the genre would find this a decent start, though nothing can beat the full experience of the dance and music together in a live show.
