One of those tracks that I missed when it came out, vivid and haunting.



  • E. says:

    This is fantastic!

  • Awesome says:

    The voice of Mayte Martin. Incredible.

  • Alan Hyde says:

    I think this is the recording, not the recording photographed.

  • drummerman says:

    Not sure I understand your headline, NL. “Alarming” meaning great or meaning awful? My dictionary says that “alarming” means ‘worrying or disturbing.’ Care to explain?

  • Greg Bottini says:

    I love it, and I love the Labeque Sisters!!!

  • fflambeau says:

    Beautiful. A wonderful choice. Thanks.

  • EdgarSelf says:

    Nothing here alarms me, though I prefer Spanish guitar to duo pianos and male singers with male or female dancers, castanets, all the trimmings, rojas redolent oles in the back and foreground, cigarillos, trigo y cinturas a la Lorca. Manitos de Plato, Sabicas, or Narciso Yepez suit me down to the ground. Canto hondo~

    Speaking of which my good Bavarian three-quarters finally is happy against her will: she has today her very own Hurricane Hnna, at last, taking some of the strain off.
