'Rafael y Lola'

Rafael and Lola sing and play flamenco in a musical journey around Andalucia. Passion, musicianship and rhythm come together in an extraordinary live recording of cante, palmas, taconeo and rasgueos - singing, handclaps, foot tapping and strumming - in strong performances which recreate the traditional styles and genres of this amazing art form.

Originally from Triana, one of the largest gypsy areas of Seville, the Soleá is a 'mother chant': many types of flamenco music derive from this particular rhythmic, melodic and harmonic style. A Bulerías is from Jerez: it is a rhythmic improvisation in twelve beats. Rondeña is from Ronda. It is a cante libre, a freely improvised work in different tuning. Alegrías is from Cádiz. As its name suggests, it is a cheerful, happy dance form. Nana is a lullaby. The Taranta is from the South Eastern region of Spain and is based on traditional mining chant, with Moorish influences. The fandango is from Huelva. It's in three time and is a popular, light- hearted song and dance. The Tangos from Cádiz is enjoyed by flamencos for its gypsy groove. The Siguiriyas, of Hindu gypsy origin is one of the most important flamenco styles. It is in a five beat rhythm and was often played as a funeral march. Ay Llevame is specially composed for this album and shows the expressive emotional depths of the flamenco style. The 'little elves' Rumba is an upbeat party-piece, while the final Tangos de Málaga shows how diverse the styles can be from one city to another.
