Description

This classic account of the flamenco way of life before it was corrupted by creeping commercialism is based on Donn Pohren's eight years running a flamenco centre at Moron in Andalusia, "the wildest years of my life which I barely survived". His experience of flamenco and its mainly Gypsy singers, dancers and guitarists provides a vivid picture of flamenco at a time when it was still entirely genuine and a part of everyday life. It is extensively illustrated with contemporary pictures of the Gypsy artists and includes a new epilogue in which the author sees the first faint signs of a reaction against the commercialism which destroyed the flamenco way of life as lived by the Gitano artists and the hope of a revival genuine flamenco.
