Comings and goings: mestizo musics. Baroque music of the colonial era in dialogue with the Flamenco. Arcángel and Fahmi Alqhai record the dialogue between flamenco and baroque music ‘Las idas y las vueltas’. Arcángel and Accademia del Piacere, conducted by Fahmi Alqhai, have finished recording the project ‘Las idas y las vueltas’. The album, which will come together with a DVD about the show, will be released this April by the independent label Alqhai&Alqhai. The disc will include the encounter between colonial baroque music and flamenco which the cantaor and the classical music group premiered at the 2011 International Music and Dance Festival of Granada, and which has already been presented at forums like the Auditorio Nacional in Madrid and Elche’s Medieval Festival, among others.
A limited edition of the Camaron de la Isla 'Integral' box-set. It represents a veritable journey through his life and singing. It includes 21 original albums. The first 17 of them were made in recording studios by Camaron from 1969 to 1992 while he was alive. The title of his new album in 1975 seems to indicate the path politics would take, because of its reference to "majestad" (majesty, or King). "Arte y majestad" is a work in the Camaron manner as few others -his styles and vocal twistings are presents in each track, although the authorship of the cuts is still signed by Antonio Sanchez. To prove it, all that is needed is to listen to the "soleares", "tarantas" (the credits say "tarantos"), "seguiriyas" and "bulerias", outstanding the one dedicated to his admired Curro Romero, in which Paco de Lucia gave a preview of some sounds from the coming "Almoraima".
