Details

The guitar everywhere gives voice to our deepest feelings but in Andalucía and in Argentina it sings perhaps the most solitary song of all and at the same time the most fraternal; the most unifying, yet the most inward looking. The strength and the suffering of Argentina and Spain combine to produce a magical sound. Paco Peña's startling bursts of flamenco and the virile anguish of Eduardo Falu's guitar achieve a dialogue that is brilliant and pithy, impetuous and temperate, festive and mournful like man's life from the cradle to the grave.

Reviews

"Flamenco per se has not crossed the Atlantic but it has common ground with South American music, especially that of Argentina, viz the elements of solitude and wistful melancholy. Their compatibility is shown in the coming together of Paco Peña and Eduardo Falú, Argentina's most distinguished singer-guitarist-composer."

John Duarte, Gramophone
