¡Olé! Flamenco

By Sententia Vera

George Ancona, author and photographer, has initiated a curiosity for the historical, oral tradition of flamenco. The human essence of this tradition, passed down through generations across the globe, is apparent in Ancona’s photography and storytelling. Its photography is vivid and expressive, as its story is captivating and eloquent. So much so that its readers are motivated to experience the tradition in every form, whether as a cantaor, a palmero, a bailaor zapateando, or a tocaor rasgueando on a flamenco guitar or striking the cajón. . . . By and large, a book worthy of notice and experience for its historical and cultural tradition. —Sententia Vera
