Fingers Faster than the Eye!

I have a good friend, who has a tapas bar back home and who is also a magnificent flamenco guitarist and singer. I thought of him just now and decided to look him up on Youtube, because he was going to make a CD he told me. He is not there, but one of his colleagues, who goes by the same name of (Juan) Carlos Montoya is also a virtuoso and I embedded it over here to give you a taste of what my friend sounds like. My friend’s name is Juan Carlos Montoya y Montoya, which is one hundred percent Gypsy!

By the way, the name “Flamenco” comes from the Flemish emperor Charles the fifth, who graciously allowed the Gypsies to express their very own special culture and music, which had been denied them under the Catholic Kings Fernando and Isabel. Enjoy…
