Description

Fernando Peña Soto - El Pinini - was a celebrated flamenco singer and patriarch of one of the biggest, and most illustrious, dynasties in flamenco history. The branches of this family tree are laden with many of the greatest names in flamenco history, and this book charts their genealogical lineage from the eighteenth century until present day. Most of us are aware of the Romany custom that declares all Gypsies are cousins, this book will demonstrate that this assertion may well have some foundation. A previous version of this book was first published by flamenco sapiens in Seville in 2011. The author's continued work concerning this mammoth gypsy clan has prompted him to rework the original book.
